Transfer is on the list.  The first bit of Transfer will look
a lot like CFA.  The 'hard bit' is that if we do get the start
right and have an active channel and a channel on hold is to
bridge them and get out of the way.  I've been looking over
the other channel drivers to gain inspiration, but I do not
have much in the way of a plan at the moment.
