I would like to add a 'Send this member a message' link on the member profile page, so that this member is add as receiver automatically. How could I achieve this?

Funny, I thought that was in the API, but I guess I never added it. I've just pushed it into the Github repo, so if you pull down, you should be able to do the following in the scope of a Member object:

<a rel="fb" href="$SendMessageLink">send a message</a>

Let me know how that works for you
