That's fine.  Finger touches are just mouse events, right?  There will
have to be a `popup-info-maximized' version of my function that creates
a maximized frame.

Laying out the frame contents as a 3x6 grid of buttons is pretty easy,
too.  I don't think I should be going as far as actual UI and launchers
with my work yet, rather I'll try to provide some basic facilities that
can be customized for each screen size and user.

I'm glad you are looking in that direction.  My challenge will be to do
work that's generally useful, so both desktop users with large screens
and mobile users with small screens will benefit.  I'll keep your needs
in mind.
