We're in the same boat, more or less -- different companies, one server.
I was thinking of using a database to keep track of things. Perhaps even
base extension handling altogether out of the database.

We are using the Asterisk internal DB currently, as it's there, it's fast,
and the call forwarding code posted to asterisk-users a bit ago uses it. I
don't think I'd be too adverse to PostgreSQL, except I'm not sure about the
reliability concerns of throwing in a couple SQL queries in the middle of
call processing. I am, however, wondering how effective it would be to
edit the physical database files outside of Asterisk.

Yup. The phone-based processing is quite doable, and is being done here.
However, our management seems to have a thing for pretty pictures, and it
would be cool to be able to adjust things remotely. -rt
