Oddly enough, it looks like songoma may be similar to Digium in that
they have written and give away the code to help facilitate hardware
sales. If you download the wanpipe software, it has a GPL license in it.
Of course there is where the trouble starts in that it could be included
in the GPL version, but not the Digium proprietary version.

Also from looking at their site, the T1 and e1 cards are still more
expensive that Digium cards. 

Juan may be right that it would be better to work with the openss7
people. Seems they finally have opened up their code for anyone to
download it instead of their core developers.
