The new SHR-U has that for you. :-)

My experience is that GPRS has been stable for a long time, and WIFI
is fine _if_ the phone don't suspend. So keep it on, either by
plugging in power, or by turning suspend off in shr-settings.

There is one annoying problem if several of GPRS/USB/WIFI
is used - the last one to be used changes /etc/resolv.conf,
and if that connection quits then the remaining ones
may fail to look up names. Can be fixed by restarting 
the remaining connection.

I never tried that - but make sure the thing doesn't suspend.
Plug in power, or turn suspend off.
