I would like this feature also, and really I assumed it would become  
a commonplace usage on OpenMoko.

Stuff the caller. I carry a mobile phone so I can make outgoing calls  
when I'm away from home, not so I can be interrupted in the middle of  
a conversation. If someone is calling me they assume that they're  
going to incur the cost of a call, anyway, so I don't see that the  
cost of a call to voicemail is a large imposition (it is probably  
better than me answering my phone to say "stuff you", at least).
