When Rick was recoding e-Sword for SQLite, he implied he was cleaning
up the code base to make it easier to add additional functionality
I wonder if this is part of that additional functionality that he
worked on, or if it is an artefact of the touch screen driver.

From my POV, it makes more sense to wait till non-touch screen
mobile devices can run e-Sword, than rewrite Pocket e-Sword for those
systems. (IOW, I'd put Pocket e-Sword out to pasture, and focus on
increasing the functionality of e-Sword.)
