On SMS Daemons...

Andrew, cheers for your suggestion. I'd actually looked at smstools prior to starting on this project, and decided that it was too GSM specific, and also lacking in functionality. I don't like the way it uses the filesystem for interaction either. The Plan is to make something generic enough to use as a general message delivery platform.

I do have a copy of the source sitting nearby, which I'm snarfing bits from occasionally.

Oh, and yes, it is fun to do anyway....

I've had a couple of suggestions to just use Python. I don't want to get into some sort of religious argument, so I'll just say that I prefer C when I want to do something substantial. I'm the sort of person that likes tools like Perl and Python for glue, quick hacks, or those little tools of convenience.
