With ModemManager will the workarounds have to be done in the code or
is there some method that an end-user can drop chat script in to
ModemManager?   For example I have a Blackberry that I tether using
Barry and it has a non-standard method of creating a serial port.   I
would like to help get this working but I am not much of a developer.
