Hi Tambet Ingo:

I'm Roberto Majadas (mobile-manager developer). I was reading your spec
about modem-manager. It's really interesting but i think you are trying
to implement the same thing that we've implementated. 

Mobile Manager has a public and documentated Dbus API[1]. It support
many features like pin/puk management, device and status information,
plug & play support, device plugin system....

At the moment we support this devices :
 - Huawei
 - Option
 - Nozomi
 - Sierra
 - Novatel
 - Usb devices
 - Bluetooth devices

And in the future we'll support more devices.

About the programming language that should be written a daemon. Yeah C
it's a good option in fact (i'm C programmer). But there are many, many,
many situations easier to resolve using python in this case. The GPRS/3G
devices sometimes are evils ;), belive me, i was working on it the last
two years :). In this way MobileManager only depends of python,
python-dbus and python-gobject (5-10Mb in memory)

At the moment we use wdial to establish the ppp connection but we can
change it and use NM ppp system. 

We are open to talk everything and we are open to colaborate ;)

Btw , we have packaged mobile-manager, you can try it [2]
