The branch is not done yet, got postponed for some other work but will be active again soon.
It will *never* become part of 1.8, that would be against the release regulation we have in the project.
It is simply a very big bugfix.

The current code adds "shadow peers" so we can accept calls from any server in the SRV record set.
We also do proper selection of server on outbound calls. 

There's some testing of failover still to be done and an IMS hack missing.
