Well, glad that Dan asked me if I'm "100% sure" because it made me to
check one more time and, yes, I found at least one CA-42 compatible
So, this is getting interesting :) I see at least the following
- do not support cables at all, let people do the work manually - this
would be sad as they're are hundred of millions of phones and probably
millions of cables out there so quite a few potential users..
- mark cable to support either GSM or CDMA, let the affected
applications to sort it out what kind of device is actually connected
- default either/or (perhaps even based on some external criteria like
locale/timezone/whatever) but allow the user to change the mapping.
Alas, it seems that this is getting much more difficult than I
originally anticipated when I posted the patch but I guess sooner or
later someone would have came to this same situation anyway.
