There is not.  The existing implementations are the best guide you've
got.  The console channel drivers (chan_console, chan_oss, chan_alsa)
are the ones I usually recommend starting with.  They are much simpler
than the complex telephony technology implementations such as chan_sip,
chan_iax2, or chan_dahdi.
