Though still a "post-by-phone" feature, I think if you were going to use
WAP instead of email for the post method, you might want to start from
scratch.  The moblog module is little more than a mail client and
attachment formatter/downloader specific to MIME attachments.

I would be interested to hear about how the various wireless services work
in Europe.  I can tell you that from my research, most carriers in the US
provide some form of email gateway for text/binary messages.

No, if it meets its grave it will happen through neglect as opposed to any
direct action on my part.  I haven't lost interest, just time.
