Hopefully, the S() and L() options aren't going away, since they work in a
slightly different way:  that is, they start the timer from when the slave
channel is *answered*, not *immediately* as this new feature works,

This is inconsistent with how other timeouts currently work.  Other timeouts
jump to a particular extension in the current context, namely 't' (for
response) or 'T' (for absolute).
