While this solution (implemented in v55) looks good at first sight, i nearly 
throwed my new GTA04 out of window because of it. The phone was unusable 
(because of reenumerates) and even i as commiter of the patch forgot that i 
have to tell AT_OPSYS=0,2 to the modem. So this is clearly bad. It requires 
regular user to fiddle with modem to prevent random crashes (which is much 
worse noticable then slow GPRS).

I'd suggest to put the effort to really solve the problem. IMO we have got 
enough of workarounds now. You can easily have 3G in QtMoko. Instead of 
argueing if 3G is more important then phone calls let's try to solve the 
problem now. We can get back to finding even better workarounds later...
