Idea for Openmoko application: seismic sensor network

Now that our phones have accelerometers and are Internet capable, how
about contributing to the "Quake Catcher Network"?
It is based on an open source project called BOINC
(http://boinc.berkeley.edu/) and therefore I think OM would be a very
nice addition to the sensor network.
Maybe the "Gestures Daemon" could be expanded into something a little
more generic (preferably integrated into FSO's Dbus API) and could
filter the information, separating events by classes, like "Rotation of
the Down vector", "Gesture", and "Seismic Vibration" (which are all
mathematically different)... and so each client app (Rotate, Gestures
Listener, BOINC, etc.) would pick up on the desired class of data.
Just an idea... :)
