Did I miss this, or is it an unheralded feature?

Or, is this a "RTFM" moment?

Goofing with my Day 1 iPhone, I "held" on any number of alpha and numeric keys in SMS, and lo! accented characters appeared!

I swear I never noticed this until tonight (1.0 through 1.1.1), and I thought I had figured out all the functionality.

My Spanish-texting friends will be so pleased!

And if this is nothing more than an Old-timer's moment, just walk away and let me enjoy the brief buzz...

Well my phone does not do anything when you hold down a letter in sms. I have 1.1.1.
