USB modems can also be used for fax SENDERS .. but may not
be totally kosher in the receive mode.

I have tried a Netcomm Roadster II 56 USB modem, for faxing outbound 
it works a-ok, havent tried inbound yet, but for other apps like mpd 
in answer mode it plays silly buggers..  
and essentially loops the mpd daemon trying to get non existent statii.
