OK, I'd like to ask one question now. Is there a reasonable technical
way to *control* qt-stack-managed Freerunner without GUI? This means
sending SMS from CLI and all these small things.

In other words, I'm interested in command-line interface instead of
programming interface. I believe the latter is up and running,
but is the former implemented?

Frankly, I do not know what the answer is.

And yes, in case it is like "You just invoke this function from this
library with proper arguments", I think I'll go and write a simple
CLI wrapper, for this is just what makes Unix-like systems so usable.
But if the only correct implementation lives deep in the code of qt stack,
then we'd better try and separate it.

Generally speaking, I guess it's convenient and powerful interfaces,
rather than compatibility with existing applications, that matter more
just here.
