btw, I'd recommend using Telepathy for calls and messaging.
CSD is cellular specific, while with using Telepathy you can cover
both cellular and VoIP calls in your application. To start:


Of course, some apps may still want to use CSD directly (for
whatever reasons), but one should be aware it's an internal
platform API in Maemo5 that may e.g. be refactored at some point. 
Not necessarily a problem for all applications, but just so you 
folks know...

PS As for Matan's original question, sorry, I don't know
   the current Telepathy interfaces well enough to give
   you more specific pointers.
