OK, well earlier I posted a bug #12715 highlighting some updates to 1.2
that were promoted to 1.4 but not then to trunk (which was probably an
oversight). I later also found some further updates for 1.2 that were
not even applied to 1.4.

Can these merges be actioned at this late stage? Or would it be better
for me to apply them by hand myself and submit patches to bring the files
up to date?

Does it still use OpenH323 and pwLib? They were a royal pain to use, and
one of the main reasons why chan_oh323 was such as resource hog. I don't
know how much of them chan_h323 used. But chan_ooh323 is so much nicer by
not using them!
