Actually, there's another subtlety of Camp-On that hasn't been brought
up in this thread: in all the implementations I've seen, the caller is
in fact "camped on" the callee's extension, and the callee *cannot*
receive or place any other calls until after the caller is connected to
them and hangs up. When the callee's current call is disconnected, the
camped-on call is immediately delivered to them.
