Greetings!

So I was looking at the mobile module with a local SS3 install and getting all kinds of ideas for dev. Very happy with the functionality out of the box, simple to use & configure.

The next step I would like to take while using this module is create pages that appear in the normal site hierarchy, and pages that appear in the mobile hierarchy. The reason for this is that you often want to deliver a streamlined version of a site to a mobile device (such as an iPhone) that helps visitors get straight to 5-7 key features.

I've thought about a few possibilities. Checkbox in a page's settings for "show in mobile menu". I've also thought about having an optional html editor for "mobile content" to show in a mobile theme (streamlined version of the standard content).

I'd love to have a side-by-side site-tree editor (drag and drop) for pages for both a mobile version and standard version of a site. It seems like this module gets us a long ways toward that kind of thinking. A simple admin interface that lets a client customize both a mobile version and standard version without having to redirect to m.mysite.com or have an entirely different install.

Open to thoughts of course. I know I threw a bunch of ideas out there, definitely wondering if anyone else has had them, solved them, or has better ideas.
