I've been working, over the past few days, on a web store for a client using Satchmo. I wanted to share some of my findings here so that others don't trip up at the same places.
Firstly, I've committed a fix that has been pulled into the mainline build which puts images from product variations into a JSON array on the product view page.

Secondly, I've been working through the payment plugin, trying to find a suitable module. Things of which you need to be aware:
Anyway, I hope that saves someone some effort and will update on my progress.
On a final note: I wrote this entire blog post on my new Samsung Galaxy S2 using the SwiftKey keyboard and I'm pretty sure it was no slower than typing it on my PC.
