I think it would be more productive if you could divide the work rather than
duplicating it.  If dexter already has the 8716 part done up to SELECT FILE,
then it might be more useful to add the SIM specific bits to it.

Also, if you want to work with SIM cards:  We still need the phone-side
implementation for OsmocomBB, i.e. a driver for the SIM reader inside the
phone, plus a software layer that provides a filesystem-level API where we can
simply call functions lieke iso7816_read_file_record() that would
 * selects a file
 * reads a caller-specified record
 * copies the result in a caller-provided buffer

To make it short: There is a lot of work to be done, and I would rather like to
see the two of you to work on separate tasks, rather than duplicating work.

After all, we want to see as much progress as possible and can need all
help we get.
