You also need to port device drivers for the various devices you plan to install, such as USB mass storage, USB keyboard, USB sound (for K4), USB mouse, USB bluetooth, etc. You may also need to write code that knows how to traverse a USB hub. Some of this may be portable from android or debian linux repositories, but some may need custom drivers.

It just takes somebody with enough interest and time to dedicate to it.
This is why it goes swish over this silly girl's head.
I'd post here what I'd be willing to do to anyone who came up with a solution, but then I'd be banned from the board.
