Yes, my testing (rather quite some time ago) showed that in all test cases 
the sleeps in that script were completely unnecessary.

[Since there's been discussion on startup time recently, I should note that 
there's another 1 second delay built into the startup of the actual gsmd 
code itself that is not necessary, provided the powerup and initialization 
of the serial port on the GTA01 is done in the correct order, and a bit 
earlier in startup.  Every second counts...]
