As far as I know, SMS API's exist that let you send SMS from web
applications. Why reinvent the wheel ;-)

As for improving the quality. It think it would be cool to have a
(configurable) set of notification options:
* mail
* twitter replies
* Google Talk
* Android Cloud-to-device messaging
* others...

Or maybe it is easier (better?) to integrate with a service like
notifo (http://notifo.com/).


ps: This is my first mail on the list, so a quick introduction (some
people may know me from irc already). I have contributed some code to
the iRailForPython project in the past (see
https://github.com/wouterh). As for the future, I'll have very little
time in the coming months, so expect no major code contributions soon
