Hey Igor, long time no see!

I'm guessing from the lack of feedback here that whatever approach you take
will probably not get too much kickback.

I don't use app_agent_pool and its suite of dialplan applications, but if I
understand what you're asking correctly, I would say that one consequence
of doing anything in realtime is you have to maintain alembic scripts for
the tables in question.  So if you don't want to deal with alembic, the
dynamic approach might be more interesting.

Best wishes!
