I see an excellent opportunity for you, Nikos, to prove your skills, writing
documentation :)

Dear Rene,

Thanks a lot for this contribution. Upon succesful acceptance by kannel in 
the main svn, bear in mind that an additional component will be needed: a 
patch to kannel's User's guide. This is a requirement to every patch 
submitted to kannel. Can you take care of it?

@Alex: This is a long awaited feature to bearerbox. It is also the second 
large contribution by Chimit. According to Rene it has been used in 
production for over a year without problems. I would like to see it in 
mainstream kannel. Is it feasible?

My vote is +++1
