Bug#382493: kppp request: Miniterm acessible during connection

Package: kppp
Version: 4:3.5.4-1
Severity: wishlist

Wish: have a button (or other means, such as a command line switch) to
allow popping up the Kppp Miniterm during a connection. This allows
typing in some useful commands in modern PCMCIA cards for wireless
connections to ISPs.

Case in point: sending SMSes with a "3G" datacard. For example, typing
	AT+CMGS="destination celular phone number"
	  type in SMS message
is currently only possible after switching off the connection, when it's
possible to navigate Kppp to go to the Miniterm.
