A function is a good idea, but not a replacement for variables.

We can do a function too, but the end report is only available at
the end of the call, so a function would be of no use. The function
can deliver the current data mid-call, but would be of limited use.

Well, that would imply that we can log quality for other channels as  
well, so we
need to come up with generic stuff to have a log that can handle both  
IAX2 and rtp-based channels.
