Yeah me too. I've been meaning to do python scripts or c programs
to provide droid4-sms-tools type functionality via ofono but have
not had the chance.

For smtp to ofono program or script the start-up time should be
minimal, so probably c makes sense there. The current droid4-sms-tools
ruby start up time is few seconds to send an sms.. I think python
will also take 0.7 seconds.

For readings incoming sms from onono and writing it to a Maildir or
mbox, memory consumption should be minimal as that program will
be constanly running.. So again c makes sense there for many MBs of
memory savings.

Also, for standalone devices the dependencies with ofono should be
minimal, so again c would make sense for this. So for example the
huge size of rust related binaries would add an extra dependency
for embedded systems.
