Interesting.  But most "leappad" products are 
totally proprietary.  (Read, not extensible).  
Right now it seems only capable of simple 
arithmetic mathwise.  (Lots of other neat 
features like language translation.)  But 
when I saw Doug's request I immediately 
thought "What about products like MathCad 
and Mathmatica?"  Anyway, hopefully the
"fly" will attract enough attention from
hackers so someone will come up with a
way for "homebrewers" to expand it.
