about half a year later, we still have never decided if we want to merge
that patch or not.

There has been some off-list arguments/doubts about whether we want to
route our SIM card accesses to something along the lines of a
BT-SAP-style interface.

The advantage is that we have a clear and somewhat standardized
interface to external applications that provide [remote] SIM card
access or SIM card emulation.

I personally am in favor of the patch, but given that I wasn't involved
in any other SIM related work of OsmocomBB, I feel it is up to other
developers to make any decision.

In case we agree it gets merged, I would like to suggest adding some
comments to the code, in the sense of "why are we doing this", and "what
standard is this oriented at", two topics which are not clear to
somebody who doesn't know the history of the patch before it was merged.
