[asterisk-dev] A plan for span

Can the zaptel drivers detect the presence of more than one card?  Or upon detecting the original card it assigns some random id to it so on the next reboot it doesnt go switching things around?  

I really have no idea, but i've ran into that problem having to change all the channel assignments because of having more than 1 card and it sucks.

Some simple solution would be ideal.
