Note: the 2 debug print lines will go.

Picking up queues is possible, but knowing that a queue is ringing is useful,
particulary when you are not logged in to that queue, or not a member of it.

Non BLF users, dial 72# and then are connected with caller.
If they forget to press # or the SEND button they think the pickup hasn't worked.
Not understanding there is a 3-4 second delay before the SIP call is placed.

exten => 72,hint,Queue:night_queue ;queue NIGHT BELL

exten => _72,1,NoOp(Pickup Night Bell)
exten => _72,n,Pickup(4999 at isdn)    ;direct call pickup to local Asterisk
exten => _72,n,Hangup()

exten => **72,1,Goto(72,1)

In use for months on a 1.8.5 production box.

NightBell usage:

Users with BLFs configured hear the nightbells, and see the BLF flash, press the BLF and are immediately connected with caller.
