Perhaps the problem is that CDR's the way they are now can represent
two legs of a call. This will break down whenever more than 2 legs are
involved, either at one time or in sequence.

Would something more like the queue logs be easier to write? They
would obviously be a lot more work for the billing system to parse,
but that work isn't as time critical and so you can throw more cpu
resources at the problem. Bonus: writing the complicated code is
someone else's problem...
