Well, it would be "excellent" for me too. And I don't repackage Asterisk 
for anybody, just
use it internally.  In fact, I generally go through and strip out all 
the gsm sound files and
leave install just the ulaw files.  Because I mostly want it to sound 
good all the time, and
I only have ulaw speaking devices in my configuration.
