[asterisk-dev] function ARRAY slows asterisk down

I wondering whether that removing autoservice in this case would be such a
good idea.
Since the Set(ARRAY()) function is also used in combination of func_odbc to
set multiple entries from a database lookup.
Obviously an ODBC lookup might also block for an appreciable period of time.
If this is indeed the case, then the autoservice should also be called
during a normal Set(). Am I mistaken?
