But this is wrong. On client level is for me unimportant which phone is
connected to smsd. Lowlevel function must detect phone and configure all
depend stuff. We need uniform access to all phones to access common
capabilites. And special arguments to access special capabilities for every

And other thing. All function names exported from gnokii's API must be
prefixed to avoid collision with other application. For example in smsd was
from begining function with name SendSMS. One day somebody decided to add
function with the same name to gnokii's API. And this introduced collision
in smsd.
When I was developing xgnokii all exported function was prefixed with GUI_
and the rest of functions was hidden.
Gtk uses prefix gtk_.
Glib used g_. Motif, Athena and other all use prefix.

Maybe Pawel forgot that reason why I cannot test smsd was that sms support
don't work in gnokii for long time. And when Pawel say that sms work and I
begin to adapt smsd I discover that sms still don't work.
