Encryption, Remote Admin, Framework, 2.0...

 Some questions... Android currently seems to have a well-designed
security framework (?) which limit what apps can or cannot do, which
is good considering the improved connectivity, and the vast personal
and business information storable on today's mobile phones.

On the other hand, (IMHO) there seem to be something missing at the
moment. For example:

- File/Filesystem encryption for both onboard flash and external
- Remote administration (setup, backup, wipe; centrally-managed and/or
individually managed and/or mobile network managed)
- Wipe user data upon ? failed unlock attempts

My question is, is the Android system as a whole capabable to
accomodate these functions? If it's not currently supported. Is there
any plan to advance the development at these fronts, so they'll be
available, or can be implemented, say in the 2.0 release?

 to make it short:

all of this should be possible with more or less work. Porting existing
tools should be the fastest way to get convenient results. Encrypting
the whole filesystem will be a lot of work, in my opinion.

2. Downgrading 2 app to 1.5

I've a (non-google maps) app that I want to install on a 1.5 phone.
However, it was originally built for 2 (can't remember if it was 2.0
or 2.1), and when I set the target as 1.5 I get some errors:

1. 'invalid resource directory name' - the directory exists and is
unchanged, the contents are listed in the Eclipse browser. Errors
shown on re/drawable-hdpi, re/drawable-ldpi and re/drawable-mdpi

2. 'R cannot be resolved'. This appears to be the fact that R.java is
no longer present. I've fixed this by importing android.R (not sure
why it needed to be done again), but now

setContentView(R.layout.main); cannot be resolved.

I see that I still don't have an R.java.

A bit confused here :)
