Sorry Matthias,  I do appreciate your offer of tooling a case.  Most  
of the other ideas, though, were just to debate the merits of an e-Ink  
screen or to say whether or not AA batteries were a good idea or not.   
Aside from you & Tim, though, no real offers to work towards actually  
implementing such a device.
