Stylesheet pony: jump between subsites from individual posts?

I love the iPhone style sheet. pb, you're a big damn hero for writing it. But can I offer a small suggestion? Currently on the standard view, you can use the top links to jump between sub-sites from anywhere on the site. On iPhone, if you're on a second-level page, the menu options don't let you do anything but go back to the sub-site index. Can the sub-sites be added to the "permanent" menu on the style sheet.

Yep, makes sense. Done. I was conserving space there because the threads are already long, but it's not really saving much space.

As long as we're asking about iPhone ponies, I'm all about getting search. I don't know shit about shit, so I don't know how much of a PITA this would be (probably worse than adding a new link to the bottom of a page, I guess), but it's the one thing I lament not having in the iPhone version.

(Cue pb explaining why, exactly, this is impossible/tedious/a terrible idea/not that important/just kind of a bitch to do, really)

Yeah, I hear ya on search. It'll probably be in our next version of the mobile site.

We really wanted to focus on the key features for reading and commenting in this first version, and we have the option to go into standard mode if you really need something. There are many different ways to read the site, and if you rely heavily on one of the areas that didn't make it into the mobile version I can understand that would be incredibly frustrating. It will take some work to make a good mobile interface for search.
