I forgot about one important feature that was implemented. Now in the
config file you can put [flags] section. This section can be used to
overwrite phone table with features from common/misc.c. E.g.:
RM-237=3110c, DEFAULT_S40_30
That way you can make new phones work properly (using the right code)
without modifying gnokii sources and recompiling. This is the first
step towards having external features database.

This is not yet properly documented but we will fix it soon. Kudos to
Daniele for this feature.

take care,
Pawel Kot
