Hi :)

I'm a VMC developer so I have to say something here :)

This are the contents of the device plugins dir:

Some of the plugins are fully tested by us (50%) and the rest
contributed by users, but work (some better than others) to some
extent. The number (22) aint that great when you compare it with, say,
gammu/gnokki's support of mobiles. But this 22 devices are pretty much
whats available right now in most EMEA shops.

Current VMC core is too heavyweight yes, we're working on that. Once
the refactoring is done, vmc-core will be a lean package that will
just depend on python, python-twisted-core and python-dbus. Stay tuned
