That would be much appreciated, and probably much more useful for the  
long term.

Another long-term goal for app_confbridge could possibly be the  
abstraction of the DTMF keystrokes from being hard-coded into some  
sort of configuration file.  Hard-coded settings make me twitch.  :-)   
But I'd be happy just to see your new features find their way into  
app_confbridge and then someone else might take on the task of  
abstracting the command set into configurable options.... (Michiel?  
Feeling ambitious?)
