but you can simply include all *.vala and *.marshal files in the tarball
to have them at least for reference.

On the other hand, the usage of Vala and D-Bus GLib bindings is total
overhead for this one. You might wanna have a look into libgdbus which
gives you D-Bus wit GLib mainloop integration without the hassle of
having an object oriented system. And in this case you only do GObject
to get D-Bus support. That introduces a dependency chain that is not
justifiable for a system daemon.

Still warnings :)

If you really think that having the GSM 07.10 in userspace is better
than the kernel solution, this code needs massive cleanup. It is almost
impossible to review this code.

Can you setup a git repository somewhere. Doing tarball only releases is
not really helpful.
