Well, im not triyng to send a SMS `FROM' a cellphone, im trying to send 
a SMS `TO' a cellphone. Here (in Argentina) are several sites who lets 
you send a sms for free. You also can receive SMS responses via this page
http://sms.personal.com.ar/Mensajes/msn.htm

While my tries using this page via urllib failed, i dont want to depend 
on an external page anyway. The  python class you  send to me looks like 
a  pay site (if not, i dont see why the tokenpay() and getbalance() 
methods :)

I was also avaiable to send a sms in the form of an plain email 
__cellphone_number at i_used_to_be_cool_smtp.com, but it not seems to work 
this way no longer. Again, i dont want to do it that way anyway.

Thats why im looking for a python implementation of that funcionality.

Thanks!
Gerardo
