I believe that the driver was written for IBM by some third party who
probably don't have much in the way of OS/2 programming skills.
In this day and age of open source software the company may release
the source if approached by some top OS/2 programmer :-)...
If it was released as shareware I'd definitely register a copy.
However, since it's IBM responsibility to support their products
it wouldn't do any harm to complain about the lack of functionality
as far as the modem driver for OS/2 is concerned. The trouble is
knowing where to complain effectively.
