[Scummvm-devel] Possible new backend features

Hi folks,

I am curious, is there any progress on getting the Nintendo DS port  
"official" ? What is hindering that?

I know that we talked about various OSystem features that are needed,  
and I am willing to help with that, but I can't just add them in w/o  
working directly with the people who actually *need* those features.  
The only thing I can do at this time is to make suggestions as to how  
to implement certain things; or I can implement things on request.

E.g. OSystem::setFocus(Rect) -- I can add a stub for that to OSystem  
right now, but it would be a bit poinltess w/o adding code to the  
various engines that uses it. I believe the DS port already has such  
"hooks", so instead of me blindly searching spots where I could  
insert possibly appropriate (or not) calls, it would be much easier  
if I got a patch on the patch tracker providing that (obviously a  
patch made so that the DS port would benefit from it)...

Are there other problems? Please tell me and I'll try to help.
