Not really, no. And given our status (still way to go before hitting 1.0), the 
API is subject to change.

This will not be supported. If you are using the framework, you are using a 
service abstraction and you are not supposed to do things behind the 
framework -- and you don't need to. The framework is supposed to detect 
exceptional conditions and restart resources transparently.

If you want to have full control over GSM, don't use ogsmd and just talk via 
sysfs and /dev/ttySAC0 to the modem.
