text messaging

Any perl hacker feel like adding a ton of new text messaging providers to LJ::TextMessage? The Net::SMS for module does exactly what LJ::TextMessage is trying to do.... except their method is instead of the module knowing all the tricks on how to contact the provider, they route everything through their corporate website at and keep that code up to date..... very lame, if you ask me. You get a free GPL'ed module off of CPAN and then you can only use it so much, else you start getting charged.

So, I think we need to compete with them and get LJ::TextMessage updated with a ton of new providers. I've got a ton of email from people with details on how their provider works.... we just need somebody to keep the module up to date. Any takers?
