The shrinking of caller id removes '(', ' ', ')', non-trailing '.', and '-' from the string.  This means values such as 555.5555 and test-test result in 555555 and testtest.  There are instances, such as Skype integration, where a specific value is passed via caller id that must be preserved unmodified.  This patch makes the shrinking of caller id optional in chan_sip and chan_iax in order to support such cases.  By default this option is on to preserve previous expected behavior.

I don't know the history or purpose of why we shrink caller id values to begin with, perhaps this behavior can be deprecated in the future.

This addresses bug 15940.
