Developer Info

Been working on the "developer" section of the site, adding info for folks who want to create Content Provider apps for the platform. The Content Provider API isn't as clean or simple as I would like, but it is capable of a lot of things that wouldn't be possible with something more simple. So I've been throwing together some documentation for those folks, as well as a sample application to help them get started. The sample app contains some really useful stuff, and I've open sourced it under the BSD License. So developers who want to make Content Providers will have good head start. They can reuse big portions of the sample app in their own implementations without having to worry about licensing restrictions, whether their app is proprietary or open source. Hoorah for open source!
