Phone dialer for Linux

I've searched and searched and I just can't seem to find a simple, 
command-line phone dialer for use with pulse/rotarty (ie non-touch 
tone) phone lines. I find it amazing that I can send out faxes via my 
modem in linux but can't just dial a number. I've never used PPP but 
obviously one has to dial out there too. So, I'm a bit perplexed.

The reason I'm looking is because I noticed that kaddressbook now has 
the ability to specify a command for dialing numbers. This would be 
extremely useful since my telephone has somewhat 'sticky' keys and 
besides, the numbers are all there in kaddressbook.

I'm looking for something that can be used in a way sort of like the 

~$ somedialer  -P{ulse}  -D /dev/ttys0 -N <1 234 567 8910>

If anyone knows of such a program or a way to do this, I'd love to hear 
about it.
