Another angle would be to have voicemail initiate the disconnect. That 
was one of the features of my previous employer's octel voicemail 
system. By entering  * * * voicemail would hang-up and you could 
continue without the voicemail. To my knowledge, asterisk voicemail 
does not yet support a 'backout' feature.
