[aprssig] Text Messaging Radios (a simple use)

I hate to say this, because I enjoy the creativity and hard work of the 
APRS community greatly, but the text-messaging schemes seem like 
recreating the SMS, but very badly. I have some background in teaching 
"ordinary people" technical tasks and this seems next to impossible to 
get any such group up to speed on in short order.
If someone wants to go fixing stuff, how about APRS messaging? The 
location aspect works great, but I have NEVER been able to get reliable 
messaging going with anyone I wasn't in direct RF range of.
