Yes, it works.

The problem isn't whith ifcico. I tried whith ifcico alone on the device
(that is whithout any getty) and it was ok too.
The problem is that McMail seem too much impatient.
If I understood well the Eugene's speech the getty (getty_ps in my case)
detects a EMSI call, then call ifcico whith the right parameters; I think
McMail tries to do an EMSI session whith the getty and fails (that's normal),
but doesn't try again and fallback to FTS-001
