[mercury-users] Mercury and NLP on smartphones

I'm working on a project involving smartphones and multimodal grammars for
speech, natural language processing, gestures, etc.. and I'm considering to
use Mercury in some parts of it. I have the following questions:
1 - Is it possible to generate compact code to fit into available memory on
smartphones using different platforms such as Android, iPhone, Windows
Mobile and others?
2 - Has anyone worked with unification grammar formalisms (such as
Head-Driven Phrase Structure Grammar - HPSG) in Mercury? I have found
several versions of these formalisms implemented in Prolog, but a version in
Mercury could be more efficient? Is the unification algorithm used in
Mercury more efficient than those used in Prolog?
3- Is there much difference in efficiency and code size between the
different back-ends available for Mercury?
Thanks in advance for any answer.
