the main task of xgnokii is moving data between libgnokii structs and GTK 
structs, which wouldn't be of much help if you aren't going to use GTK

if I were you I would implement only the phonebook and short messages parts , 
because netmonitor, the logo designer and the ringtone editor are useful only 
for older phones

in the end it would be a different application, rather than a port

basically xgnoki
* opens libgnokii and lets it identify the phone
* decides what menus to enable depending on the phone
* processes events from libgnokii and GTK

remember that you need to poll the library to get status information (e.g. 
unread SMs, incoming calls) and you can't send a command if the previous one 
has not yet finished (results are undefined) so you can't mix status reads 
and user commands

the utils/waitcall.c program uses the new functions and it's quite short, 
it's similar to --monitor but only calls gn_call_check_active()
