[Arm-netbook] Warning about tablets/netbooks with detachable keyboards

Hi Luke,

just a tiny note about your mentions of a "tablet/netbook" in

In case you're planning to have the keyboard detachable (even worse if this
detachable piece should have some connectors like USB), think of it twice
as per experience of many users of different such tablets/netbooks (youtube
is full of such reviews), the detachable connection is very fragile
(because the detachable design requires a shallow or rather just "touching"
connection in contrast to "sliding" deeper connectors like USB).

Therefore there will be a need for advanced SW means (from Linux kernel
through all daemons up to GUI) to cope with interrupted keyboard input,
interrupted USB communication, etc.). I'm though not aware of any such
comprehensive solutions, so this will most likely become very painful and
will stay so forever if introduced.

Keep going,

-- Jan
