Hello Rodney:
more or less yes; it's just taking advantage of the CM3/SRC-M3 compiler infrastructure, as ( and please correct me if wrong):
 (1) Use a Java enabled device (like a tablet running Android, etc via M3clipse) to type check  and AST ("new "m3front)
(2) Receive AST via network service CM3-IDE server and do IR ("m3middle")
(3). In a gcc enabled platform code generate m3cg ("m3back")

The good part of making this adaptation is that most of machines today are either (1) or (3) type (or both just as you say), so we can make the compiler more readily available  (if 1 and 3 are too ).
Also, it would nice to have separate machines for easier working so people can contribute where they want and upgrade programs automatically (every distributed computing advantage). So we just concentrate in (2) to be highly available. Besides there are a lot of (3) type machines.

Now I have one question, can we made (2) enough platform independent so just have one machine for all platforms, Jay?
Thanks in advance

 I'm not sure I fully understand.  You propose to have the front-end run on
a tablet, code generation run on a remote server?  Presumably because the
tablet lacks sufficient hardware resources?  Then the code executes where,
back on the tablet?

Personally, I find editing/developing code without a real keyboard to be so
hopelessly painful, I just wouldn't do it.  Touch screens have exasperatingly
high false positive, false negative, and wrong gesture recognition.  Maybe
I have different hand capacitance than most people.  I would prefer to do
the editing off the tablet, in which case, it would make sense that the front-end
compiling be done on the compile server too.
