Is there a memory type ME for SMS at all? All phones I know of can
either store SMS on SIM or they can save SMS on phone AND have
folders. Are there others?

xgnokii and smsd are quite different in fact. I will soon post a patch
for smsd and you will see it's much .. *very* much easier than
xgnokii. There's only one thing we have to take care of:
6110 -> GMT_SM and SMSStatus
all others -> GMT_IN and SMSFolderStatus

In xgnokii the two phones are handled totally differently.
6110: read all messages, if there are changes read them again
all others: read all messages, store them in a structure, see if there
are changes in any folder, update to reflect changes. Perhaps my
xgnokii SMS handling code is a bit bloated, but now it works quite well.

I don't see too much difference in the two possibilities. Actually I
think we need both. We could for example seave the different valif
memory types in Phone->Info. This would be listfolders. 
Then we can do a if (supports(memory_type)).
Having done this we would need a fake GetSMSFolderStatus for 6110,
which returns SMSStatus, which is the same for both phones.
For xgnokii it wouldn't change too much for the moment, because the
different phones are just handled in totally different way, which is
API independent mostly,

Surely a good idea ;-)
