I think I can speak for Josh Colp :D

I've been working on the bridging API rather heavily over the past week 
or so. It can currently handle bridging two channels together and 
multi-channel bridges fine and dandy, as is demonstrated by the 
BridgeTest and ConfBridge applications. Presently multichannel bridging 
utilizes zaptel pseudo channels but a software based mixer is in the 
works that will require no zaptel timing source. To the user it will be 
seamless, they won't even notice whether they are using zaptel or softmix.

I'm presently working on the feature side of things so you will probably 
see commits in regards to that shortly.

If there are any specific questions you have about the bridging API feel 
free to ask or I can give a general overview for general list consumption.
