You don't need to change MeetMe for a feature like this.  Just use the
'X' option to MeetMe and use something like this:


    exten => s,1,Set(MEETME_EXIT_CONTEXT=meetme-menu-main)})
    exten => s,2,MeetMe(1000,X)
    exten => s,3,Hangup


    exten => 1,1,Goto(meetme-menu-dialout,s,1)


    exten => s,1,Background(dial-a-number)
    exten => s,2,WaitExten(10)
    exten => s,3,Goto(2)

    exten => #,1,Goto(meetme,s,2)

    exten => _XXXX,1,AGI(dialout,${EXTEN})
    exten => _XXXX,2,Goto(meetme,s,2)

    exten => _9NXXXXXX,1,AGI(dialout,${EXTEN})
    exten => _9NXXXXXX,2,Goto(meetme,s,2)

    exten => _91NXXNXXXXXX,1,AGI(dialout,${EXTEN})
    exten => _91NXXNXXXXXX,2,Goto(meetme,s,2)

    exten => i,1,Goto(meetme,s,2)

"dialout" is an AGI that drops a call file in the Asterisk spool
directory, although the outgoing call could be created in a number of
other ways.  This is a simplified version of a system that I'll be
putting into production in a few days once the users of the system have
had a chance to test it out and give some feedback.
