I must say that I like imagination.
But don't you think you had a little bit too much of
Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster? 

Just kidding:)

> - "You need IPv7 NAT support with a transplanet ALG on the moon
> to fix that issue. Please read the FAQ before sending mail about
> common issues!"
> Maybe we should ask the community for some input on requirements
> for IP communications session setup, being multiprotocol and  
> multiformat.
> What can we expect? We already have sessions with three media streams,
> text, audio and video. There's some interesting scenarios that may  
> happen,
> and already happens, within Asterisk there.
> Happy easter!
