user has configured his gsm connection in NetworkManager to autoconnect
(not default). So I can use gnokii etc while the phone is connected and
seen by NM as long as the gsm connection is not active.

We could pass this to HAL. So, the user could include in the configuration file for networking autoconnect when the phone / modem is connected (and use this or that program).
I would select use NetworkManager (is there a version of Network Manager ?).
