John, Greyman--

I've taken the scenario that John described, and played it two different
ways, using zap/dahdi phones, whatever you wanna call them, because I
have 4 of those.

One way had both transfers via hookflash (attended), and the other did
a hookflash for the first xfer, and using the '#' to transfer the second

I then ran these 2 scenarios on 1.4, trunk, and the CDRfix5 branch.

Which made the CDRfix5 branch look real good.

But then, I ran those scenarios on 1.2, and suddenly, I looked pretty

CDRfix5 gave the same results as 1.2.

SO, here is my plan:

I'm opening two new branches, CDRfix4, and  CDRfix6. 

CDRfix4 will be based on 1.4
CDRfix6 will be based on trunk

I will then extract the changes made to trunk from CDRfix5, and 
apply them to both CDRfix4 and CDRfix6. Just the fixes. No enhancements.
No CDR_CONTROL func. no linkedid stuff. This is intended to strictly
be fixes.

While I'm at it, I intend to modify the 1.4 updates to be the same
as what's in trunk. That way, when I further fix CDR problems, I will
not have to maintain two different versions of CDR systems. This
might seem a bit bold, but if I can duplicate good behavior back to
1.2, and fix all/most probs that folks saw in 1.2, then there should
be few complaints.

I'm hoping, after all is said and done, to close 12724, 11093, 11849, 
and 10927.

And, before I commit these to 1.4 and trunk, I will definitely give
time to test this stuff, and we'll iron out any wrinkles/holes/etc you
along the way; at least to the best of my abilities. If something I did 
breaks compatibility, I'll try to keep compatibility as best I can, even
if a fix means an option in a config file.

Does this sound like an acceptable plan?
