So now what about porting Josm to an Apk package for Android? Not really a
portable version as it needs to install itself, however it does that inside
a container managed by Android, which is quite well isolated from other
apps, and it can then fit on a pluggable SD card or flash drive for tablets
with an USB port, or could eventually be downloaded from Google Play, if
someone registers and maintains a developer account on the Google market to
secure and sign it.
