Yes, somewhat. But the userspace daemon got agressively killed by some
sort of 'orphan killer' that tries to suspend application that are not
running in the foreground or have gotten special status by means of
using some Android api (accessible for Dalvik/Java apps) to get a status
bar icon. Also you need an unlocked/rooted phone with available kernel
source to get the Coda kernel module built/loaded and the client to run.
And many application don't actually even use the file system but use
intents and Android object storage apis such to access photos.

A custom client application that can talk to Coda servers and can be
used to navigate the file system and fire off the right intents to
launch appropriate applications to handle the various file is a better
approach than actually trying to keep a (mostly) unmodified Coda client
