I think it may have sense (however limited). I can imagine that for
automatic reporting systems sometimes you don't need any text. You may
need just to send an sms (empty or non empty or even empty may have
some special meaning) to some number to trigger an action.
On the other hand I'm not sure whether libgnokii supports empty SMS.

As the conclusion: I think we should allow sending an empty SMS from
SMSD. So if libgnokii fails with this, I'll fix it. And in the code
above I also think we should allow it.

take care,
