Not going to happen!
Android does not add educational value, its a "consume only" device.

I'm just going to add, unless you have tried to port Android to another platform, you have NO IDEA HOW MUCH PAIN AND EFFORT IS INVOLVED.

I'm doing work on Android OS at the moment, and it's HORRIBLE.

Had to get that off my chest.
