my impression would be that the truly embedded solution is the most
sustainable approach, or certainly the one with fewer uncertainties with
regard to hardware quality and availability. I feel comforted in this
direction when I see the current progress, as blogged by Harald recently:

On the other hand, I am very interested by supporting the Openmoko
Freerunner, having already written a complete embedded telephony
environment for this platform (with interchangeable telephony backend).
See https://trac.hackable1.org/trac/wiki/DeforaOSSmartphone for more
details.

Considering this, I would say that what matters most would be an
easy-to-(re)use API to interact with the telephony subsystem, regardless
of its presence on a separate chip or not. Then both approaches would be
likely, and it should even be easier to hunt and catch bugs.

Easier said than done, but HTH nonetheless.

Cheers,
