Ok, that is rather pleasant news. Thanks.

While this indeed is a rather "different" approach, it doesn't mean that
we should
exclude it all together. I don't know what the gnokii developers have to
sat about
this, but I personally think that we should first concentrate on the
basic stuff (like
identifying the phone, getting the signal/battery info, etc, and then
SMS messages, calendar, todo, in that order.

the only way, then
so be it.

Don't worry - we don't :-)  All the provided info was very helpful, and
I'd like to personally
thank you for it. If you feel you can provide any additional
information, without "giving away"
your intellectual property, please do so.
