Hello Philipp,

this could be a project for 6.2 or even 6.1!

That's why i always ask for a roadmap! -> If we have a roadmap, we can
also change such stuff easily, as we (even the small agencies) can
contact our customers regarding sponsoring etc.

I think the mobile ready question is often asked, so lets join forces
and do sth. great.
Perhaps this is also a chance to harmonize the GUI of NEOS and TYPO3 CMS!
