Hi,

I've implemented a new small feature in the mobile test harness that I
had meant to implement a while ago: by default, you now get the results
that were collected for mobile web user agents only; e.g.:
http://www.w3.org/2007/03/mth/results?ts=dom1

This allows to get a much better view of the data that are most relevant
for us; the full view is still available (linked from the restricted
view).

Whether a user agent is seen as being a mobile web ua or not is assessed
through the data available in WURFL [1], combined with the "web
patch" [2]. It doesn't always do the right thing (e.g. I think
"Opera/9.00 (Symbian OS; U; en)" should qualify as mobile web user
agent, but doesn't at this time), but it mostly works well.
