*snipping a lot of -interesting- mail*

Okay, so the executive summary here is that Asterisk is doing some things in
a less compatible way - gaining some performance at a cost so high it will
cause SS7 certification to fail. The alternative would be to buy some TE4xxP
cards and make a dedicated OpenSS7 switch platform that ties in to Asterisk
(or perhaps it can be done using TDMoE ?). 

Is there anyone who can comment on the state of things ? 

On a (slightly) related note:
I would very much like to start using Asterisk with TE4xxP cards to function
as a break-box (PBX -> * -> E1 lines) to integrate with current PBX
facilities. From the SS7 thread I understand that some things are lacking in
this aspect too. What features may be lacking in this aspect (special
signalling methods etc.) ?
