there was some talk about this back in january or so... it got even more
involved than that: if the addressbook says I'm supposed to be sleeping, but
the lights are on (maybe later we'll have an ambient light sensor) there's
lots of noise, the GPS shows I'm at a club, and the accelerometers detect
movement (those are going to be so cool)  I'm probably not sleeping, go
ahead and ring (is it too tacky to list attendees for "sleeping" maybe you
don't want it to ring, but anyways)

the talk kind of centered around a nodeset somewhere in the filesystem, but
from what I've seen on dbus that might be a better solution.  basically, you
create a group of modules, each of which is queried for a result... then
each contact is matched against a set of rules based on the set of results.

on call importance, you can also list call frequency for the contact (I.E.
if john calls me 3 times in 5 minutes, it's probably something important...
ring on the third attempt)
