Hi again, 

for the record : it took me one hour to write a bash script that does exactly 
what smssend + its configfile did (with curl as you proposed).

I think that in one week of bash scripting, I would be able to parse the *.sms 
smssend configfiles in a backwards compatible way and produce a new tool, based 
on curl, that fully replaces smssend (and skyutils2).

The conclusion to the story is : don't mess with the licences and rewrite the 
code with the right tools !

Best regards, 


N.B. Many thanks for your enlightened piece of advice Simon !
