I'd like to congratulate David on this patch and thank both David and Terry Wilson for working very hard to get this code tested and reviewed over the last couple of weeks.  This is by far the largest patch that has hit reviewboard.

This patch is a huge deal.  This fixes some architectural limitations that we have been discussing for years.  Asterisk had been limited by the number of codecs it could support.  Asterisk had been limited in its complete inability to describe formats that have attributes.  This has greatly hindered our ability to adopt modern audio codecs as well as improve our support for video.  These limitations have been lifted by this patch.
