Right, but it's more like an idea yet.

However that reminds me of a list of "features" that could be maintained, 
showing a list of things the phone knows already, does not know yet, are not 
implemented yet, needs testing, etc. Something like this:

Feature            | SHR-U | Debian | H1 | Android | ... 
Suspend               -        -       ?      x       !  
Deny-call-by-acc      +        x       ?      -       !
Do-phonecalls         p        p       p      p       p

  + Works reliably
  - Works with limitations/problems/fridays-only
  x Not supported
  ? Unknown
  ! Test and report please 
  p Planned for the future

Of course a history should be kept who has tested a feature on what platform 
and when, so everyone can decide if the information may be outdated. Something 
like this:

Suspend, SHR-U, 2009-08-28, <user>
Tested with Daily build from 2009-08-08. Wifi gone after resume

Suspend, Debian, 2009-08-26, <another user>
Works only two times. Afterwards the FR is frozen.

Deny-call-by-acc, Debian, .....
And so on.

Any volunteers? ;-)
