I agree with Tilghman's local channel suggestion, but it's tripped up
some of our Asterisk-Java users as the local channel originate succeeds
immediately, sometimes even before the second 'real' Dial() happens :)

Thus, we couldn't abstract any AMI "Originate" commands to a higher
level, since the user's local channel arguments meant we couldn't track
and guarantee a callback on success/failure. It requires direct dialplan
knowledge in order to track (track through AMI) the Originates that use
a local channel.

Some food for thought -- I wish we could abstract it for them, but I
honestly can't think of any better solutions :)
