No new thoughts yet, although that new information is useful. The idea
was that MM should have APIs to let the user configure the PDP
contexts independently, and then say e.g. use this PDP context for
connecting bearer X. I haven't investigated how to do this API,
though, as among other things we would need to sync that development
with the idea of having "autoconnected bearers".

This could be a good new target development for the next dev series,
1.9.x, once 1.8 is out. Sadly I have less and less free time every
day, so it's hard to keep up with everything... :/ Help would be much
appreciated :)
