I have never heard of this phrase in French.

I like it, thought.

Is adieu the same as au revoir?

adieu is a more permanent goodbye - literally "to God" while au revoir is more like "see you later", am I correct??

Does anyone know why can't 'salut' be used here? Not permanent enough for a letter?
