at the API level, there's a function:
 iax_send_text(struct iax_session* session, char* text);
which will do just that (both in iax 1 and 2), which generates
IAX_EVENT_TEXT on the client side. Works in P2P (bridged calls).

I have no idea how this interfaces to other channel types (or IAX1 <->
IAX2 for that matter), though my copy of * CVS contains no references
to IAX_EVENT_TEXT, so it's probably silently ignored by the server.
