No problem.  This would also allow me to have a second pair of eyes looking
at my code before I deploy it into production.  I've looked a the code and
it doesn't seem that hard, though I've only looked at Asterisk's src for
about 30 minutes!

Assume I'll get some basic feedback on my submission?



Take care and have fun,
