With the current state of the API, is it possible to write an auto-attendant
application that answers/forwards/rejects a call depending on certain
criteria? AFAIK (SDK1.0 rc1), PhoneStateListener can only be used to get a
hook into the incoming call, but there is know way to change the state of
the call itself. Has anything changed with rc2?

Further, is it possible to suppress the default phonecallapp when the
incoming call comes? Currently I see that any app that is written to listen
to IC call, is put to the background till the default phoneapp activity is

1. How secure are the IPC methods?

I was spinning some ideas in my brain and started to wonder how secure 
the inter-process communication methods are.

For example; If application A is has data unlocked using a password, and 
application B wants to make use of it, should application B pass to 
application A the password in cleartext via using a ContentProvider 
interface?, should it pass the password as a hash?, should it not use 
ContentProvider and use something else?

Anyone have any thoughts?

2. Query about Content Provider queries...

I have one quick question and one maybe not-as-quick question:

1. Will we be able to employ more robust SQL(ite) queries on content
providers with future releases? For instance: joins, distinct, count,
max, etc?

2. Why isn't this possible now? I understand the concept of DB table
abstraction and the reasoning behind it, but why not still provide
some roundabout way of doing these operations (without storing the
content in a local SQLite table, of course)?
