Well, okay, that's true.
Since I've just started on my graduation in the field of Usable Security, I'll 
be reading a lot about the subject from now on (there are already tons of 
articles available on the usability and security of mobile different systems, 
inlcuding graphical ones), so I'll be glad to contribute here :)
Maybe I can even get a student project for PA going, we'll see.
