We (= in one of my projects) wrote an SendSMSTransformer that works analogous to 
the SendMailTransformer. Another possibility is calling your SMS gateway from 
within a flow. *I* prefer the way of providing "message pipelines" with special 
purpose SendXYZ transformers as the manipulation of the content is much simpler 
(e.g. i18n) and is done the same way as all other view pipelines we have.
