Not specifically. We can support any platform that supports python and
gtk (on which zim is built). In fact we do have a port for the Maemo
However supporting platforms that do not have python and gtk means to
rewrite the whole app. Or in other words writing a new app in another
language that does the same thing. Not impossible, but it will take
years to do it, so don't count on it happening any time soon.

There are some optimizations for small screen GUI in the Maemo port
already which can be adopted for other platforms as well. If that is
what you mean.
Please note that the bulk of zim's code is actually the GUI, just
managing the data is not even close to the complexity of having a nice
interactive wrapper around the data.
