kite: kindle 3 application launcher

kite allows you to run native linux applications on kindle

> when your kindle starts up
no jailbreak is necessary to install this application.
kite applications can be sorted into collections.

>> wifi: k3w, 3g: k3g, international: k3gb

>> if X is 2 or greater, use update marked 3.2.1
