Are you talking about translating the binaries in the app stores, after they've been compiled to ARM code but before they are downloaded by the end user? Has this sort of thing ever been tried before? With all the different versions of Android and multiple development environments, this seems like it could be even worse if the inherent complexity of the situation rears its ugly head in terms of crashes or various bugs. The end users think they are getting "native" apps, but are not.

This seems like it would be a much more manageable task if it were conducted in a smaller solution space. If it were Apple trying to do it, I might buy this as a workable solution. One app store with a review process that maintains tight control over how the apps function, only one development environment, almost all apps fully tested on the latest version of the OS...
