Which gsmd will be used in future openmoko?

By the way, this would be more suitable on openmoko-devel in my opinion...

Actually, it's worse. We have 5 options :)

Qtopia, pygsmd

This is hard to tell right now. It depends on how the role / maintenance / 
importance of the three available image types (Gtk, Qtopia/EFL, 
Framework/Zhone) evolve over the next couple of months.

If we're interested in application developers using telephony without locking 
them into a language or toolkit, then we rather chose something with a dbus 
interface. This rules out Qtopia and gsmd. pygsmd is Michael Dietrich's rapid 
prototyping gsm server for API experiments. This leaves gsmd2 and ophoned -- 
both sharing most of their API (which is still  evolving, but will stabilize 
over the next few weeks), so if you start developing against one of these 
two, you can't be wrong.

I personally vote for ophoned, since it's my baby ;)
