The standalone gnokii daemon is a good idea. The current API is a little
obsoleted, but the standalone daemon gives us a chance to redesign our
API to fit modern needs: extending phonebook with picture and voice dial
support, implement a modern ringtone API (most of the phones are filesystem
based now), etc. The new API must be designed from top-down. If we do it
right, the daemon will be the glue layer between the modern and the
current (low level) API.
