I like your ideas too and I'd like to share my possible future project

You can dail like this:
	pieterc at myphone$ dail +3248...... <RET>
or a contact:
	pieterc at myphone$ dail hom<tab> <RET> # = pieterc phone home

dail should be a python/bash/... script using the FSO api.

* addcontact contact #number# -group "friends"
* whereami (returns gsm locations and searches for cityname close to
* sendtext "come home for dinner" son1 # sends sms to son1 (again with
* wakemeup 7:30
* tail /var/mail #to read last text-messages

bash-commands or commands you're used to:
ls,cd,grep,awk,tail, ps, date, ...

and some ported apps: 
* nethack (yes, the game)
* links/lynx, 
* emacs (with erc)
* fortune (I like fortune a lot.)
* ...
