The bitrot is a big concern.  Android moves pretty fast, and something
that was last updated in 2013 is likely to not play well with a phone on
Oreo (such as mine).  I could be surprised, I suppose.

I want as conflict-free a setup as possible, with good resolution of
conflicts when they do occur.  MobileOrg seems to be good at this, just
from reading the manual.  I'm not convinced that, say, Orgzly would be.

The other is that there is a lack of support for encryption.  It is not
an absolute requirement for me, but is certainly very much a "nice to
have".  Storing unencrypted stuff on a server is not really ideal.

(None of the other mobile clients save MobileOrg for iOS seem to have
this feature either.)

That's an interesting project - thanks.
