Following up on that discussion, I decided to
write a bunch of shell scripts to read/write sms,
calls, manage your address book etc. At first,
they were basicly mdbus wrappers. But it apparently
took me a full year get the details right.

And today is a nice day to release what I have

I'm curious what y'all think. My aim was to write
something that would beat the guis: quicker to load,
easier to work with, more reliable, and, when using
a gui like FatFingerShell [2], prettier :-)
But to be honest, I'm not there yet.

I learned the nitgrit of bash, sed and awk along
the way; most of the code already looks like
babytalk to me now, but well it works.
