If you use Cacko's rom, we cannot support our apps on it and Cacko has been
breaking compatibility - just a caution.

Sash and I don't want TKC to have their hands on the ROM we're supporting. Period.

People, who has been with the Zaurus community for a while, know the reason.

Even better are the posts in the last couple days about people stating that they would pay for the tkcROM development, and Shawn Gordon's response:

 please, this isn't helpful.  If you honestly want to see continued
 development and an update, then we would need to have $5,000 raised to
 finance the development and support of it.  We would be more than happy to
 then pick it up and give it a priority.
Five fricking grand!!!  
I love you guys that are developing stuff here......

Yes, and note that they did almost nothing except for labeling a ROM... That is some expensive label
