Honestly I think with your skills, something else would be more
suited. :)

I really like to see getting this done. Some nice demo app on top o it
showing us what we can do with such things in the future.

A lot people like to do this it seems. Still it is only one task atm,
so we would need to make a choice. Better be prepared for other tasks
and send applications, too.

With your experience in GSM you perhaps also have nice ideas what we
can do with this "feature". :) Don't hesitate to offer different
applications then the one you can find in the wiki. We are open for
ideas here.
