hmm i wasn't unsure in the first place about provide that function or not, in 
the end we decided to provide it just to make easier to port already existing 
apps, that saidi think it's good that all passive messages looks the same, 
making it an alien just because is reachable trough another code path doesn't 
seem really good to me (maybe usability wise is good or terribly bad, can't 
really say about that)
