Where is the Sales Order Confirmation Email Button

Why there are no buttons to email of print the sales order (confirmation)? As workaround we have to use the generic print button, select the correct template/report, save or open it and send to the customer.

A quotation or invoice can be send by email of printed by the (at start of the workflow) red buttons.

This should be also possible for sales order confirmations, how to add these buttons?

P.S. I know the possibility to automatically send emails etc., but depending on customers we need to send by fax or regular mail.

<button name="action_quotation_send" string="Send by Email" type="object" states="manual" groups="base.group_user"/>

<button name="print_quotation" string="Print" type="object" states="manual" groups="base.group_user"/>

in Technical/User Interface/Views/sale.order.form

With this solution, you will lose these buttons when you will update module. better solution would be to create a custom "view module" that inherit from sale.order.form.
