I'd mention that wildcards are also searched depth-first, and that if a
wildcard in the current context matches, a more specific extension in an
included (or switched) context will NOT get executed.
This is the most confusing part for me. I was under the impression (and it
always seemed to work) that wildcards were searched DEAD LAST, since an
included context with an extension with fewer (incl. 0) wildcards was a
better match than an extension with more wildcards.
What's scary (to me) is that my dialplans have been working just fine until
very, very recently.
