I would like to agree with Franck on this. I have also partly held off 
developing for SailfishOS due to e.g., the Harbour process, as well as 
due to APIs my apps need to are not allowed. I think that in case Jolla 
wants developers to focus on developing native apps for SailfishOS, many 
improvments are needed in this area.
