you star!  from that, moving gsmspeakerout.state to one side and linking 
gsmheadset.state to gsmspeakerout.state means that, whilst i don't need 
speakerphone mode much, i can now switch to headset - which is very 
important for me - inside a call.

i notice now that there's a headset option that shows up there 
*sometimes*, but it's less-easy to access than "speakerphone" and anyway 
it doesn't work as well.  perhaps it loads headset.state instead of 

if anyone else wants the details, they're at 
http://www.teaparty.net/technotes/openmoko-2.html#Headset . 
interestingly, this has reduced the list of things that prevent my 'moko 
from being a perfectly good everyday phone to zero.
