The LCL-Android already has some basic components implemented. Button
clicking works, for example.

But I already foresee a difficulty in porting existing apps because
the controls and fonts in Android are much bigger then in desktop
platforms. Fixed-size layouts will have a hard time being ported.

This could be fixed by introducing some phone-like layouts in the LCL,
like the linear layouts from Android.

If you ever do, please implement it in the Custom Drawn Package from
Lazarus, then we can use this TCDTreeView in both LCL-Android and
LCL-fpgui =)
