The policy configuration is in:

As a temporary hack for your own device, you might try to modify
that file as root and then do "killall ohmd" to restart it with
the new policy.

This way you get to decide what has the priority instead of it
being dictated by Nokia. :-)

In future there may be some way to install extra policies.

NOTE: if this conf file has errors, ohmd isn't started and your
device will most likely behave strangely as result (cannot play
music etc).

DISCLAIMER: if it breaks, you get to keep all the pieces.
I.e. have an up to date backup of your data and be ready to
reflash in the case that things really break.  Modified policy
is an untested configuration.
