The mokoscripts archive includes a replacement for
/etc/X11/XSession.d/89qtopia.  I don't see anything about gsmd, just gpsd
(the same archive has agps stuff in it) and gsm0710muxd, the multiplexing
gsm service. Also, the instructions specifically state that he's not sure
about 2007.2 and FSO but has tested it with ASU.  I successfully used the
instructions (altered for t-mobile's internet3.voicestream.com service)
under both 2007.2 and 2008.8, though to be honest I never tried it under
2008-update or 2008.9.  (yet - once my FR is back in my hands I intend to
set it up again)
