I agree with maintaining the current nomenclature, but that would be
Zap/CHAN, nothing to do with the span number.  The whole point of this
discussion was to find an alternative nomenclature so that the span
number and relative channel could be displayed along with the absolute
channel number, since the span and relative channel make it easier to
think about how a channel is routed.
