Yes of course
OK, and what about my other 2 questions?:
Once again: are you using my vdesktop beta version?
And what command do you have to run for this mate desktop to launch?
Also, does running x-terminal-emulator launch a terminal on your system? Or do you get "command not found"?

A lot of people won't be too thrilled by the analytics unless you make it opt-in but then its useless.
True. The type of analytics I'm looking to get are anonymous, like how Github does it with their clone counter. Just a graph displaying how many people cloned the repo during a 24-hour period.

Re: Running remotely via Android?

RealVNC is probably your best option, if using the GPIO is absolutely necessary . Using RealVNC to click buttons is rather easy, but to drag-n-drop takes a double-tap. Scratch is 100% drag-n-drop. Those double-taps will get tiresome quickly. If you can do without GPIO, then maybe running Scratch dir...

I'm assuming you want to attach an EEPROM or FRAM chip to your Pi, and use that for storage.
No, I think the OP is asking how to make changes to the Pi4's internal EEPROM.

changing the v4l2 config with

v4l2-ctl --set-fmt-video=width=1280,height=720,pixelformat=H264
results in a smooth video with low latency.
