For those of you using Linux, building mobile apps requires us to move 
our work to either Mac or Win to make standalones.

For iOS this is to be expected; Apple has the right to require that we 
spend a thousand dollars purchasing a Mac from them to build for their 
mobile OS.

But for Android, the SDK is available for Linux so ideally we should be 
able to build for Android Linux from desktop Linux without having to 
spend hundreds of dollars on a copy of Windows to do that in a VM.

I was surprised to find that there was no RQCC request for this, so I 
submitted one:
