Plug-in for position reports ?

Programmers - here's a challenge.

Sailing offshore outside cellphone or AIS range - reporting position via e-mail is a great possibility. Marinetraffic.com is one of the most wide spread
tracking services on the WEB where most targets comes via AIS. But they also accept reports via e-mail providing correct format is used.

If anyone is up to the challenge to make a plug-in in OpenCPN, you can read more here:

Can I e-mail my position reports to you? – MarineTraffic Help

A plugin should have a field where your MMSI is stored.

A button to generate "Fresh" report in a format accepted by marinetraffic.com.

A copy to clipboard button to copy the message. The rest is done manually by pasting the text from the clipboard into your favourite e-mail client and sent.
