Competitive advantage and "first out" aside, heads up though Jared: I  
got errors while trying to activate your plugin under the current WP  
trunk (Plugin could not be activated because it triggered a fatal  
error.) and got a WP error while trying to access it from 2.2.x  
(Cannot load MobileAdminNormalUI).
