Ok, we're talking here about two different things. My effort for multi 
device support in fsogsmd is a a step before what you describe. It's not 
about using VoIP and a AT based modem together. Think about situations 
where you have more than one modem (and really a modem) to control like 
in a phone with more than one SIM card or on a laptop where you have a 
phone connected via HFP HF and a UMTS stick for your data connection.

Controlling VoIP and a modem together with the same API is definitely 
nothing we should do in fsogsmd itself but in telepathy or a fsophoned.
