It should have these icons:
  1. Phone call
  2. Text message
  3. Network config
  4. Terminal

This has to be built from the metabuild, probably using temporary placeholders for the phone and text message apps.

Network app needs to be a C version of the imwww. Either that or I need a really lightweight browser that can display that service. imwww would need a version that doesn't have the AP setup in it.

The launcher needed support for
  1. CCW rotation
  2. Disabling the splash screen.
  3. Support for the Xeon touchscreen.

All have been implemented in either the launcher and/or libpibox. The launcher doesn't need to know which apps it's going to launch so a specialized launcher wasn't needed, just the -x option when building the launcher in order to disable the splash image to free up screen space on the smaller display.

Rotation is hacky and currently coded in the launcher. This will move later to libpibox.

That's good enough for Xeon for now. All changes tested, committed and pushed.

Closing issue.
