Well, nobody will recognize difference between rating 2 and 3 or 6 and
7. I think set of three values is sufficient: 1 - allow network/GSM
activity, 2 - ask every time app is trying to open connection/send
SMS/make voice call, 3 - ban without asking.

I wonder if OpenMoko system/library calls can be overriden or catch at
layer which will be able to show dialog popup for setting 2.
