Ah, now this brings us back to the original concern with mobile phone 
positioning - not being able to get the cell id out of the phone via 
bluetooth.  Given this does seem possible, we just need to work out 
which MPS system has the most open API for a proof of concept.

Of course, I say "we", although as a non-developer (certainly not of the 
calibre of others here), I'm not sure how much I can help....
