For some time I've been working on android-platform-headers project,
hope it may be of interest to Replicant developers to at least be aware
of it.

android-platform-headers is a project to extract extended set of
platform headers, native link libraries and java link libraries from all
releases of Android. These headers and libs then can be used to build
advanced Android software, requiring access to more APIs than provided
in official Android SDK.

android-platform-headers allows to avoid fetching (few Gb) and building
(~an hour, several more gigabytes) to compile mentioned advanced
software. Providing headers and libs of various Android versions side
by side raises awareness of the fact that Android is highly fragmented
system and apps wanting to access not officially blessed API sets
should take special effort to support different platform versions.

More info is on the project home page,

Best regards,
