I used to use * with Packet8 - it took some fixes to the * SIP
implementation but those are in the CVS long time ago.

But then Packet8 started sending emails complaining about my
"foreign" UA software and threatening disconnection.  I suppose this
was to do with stopping people pumping millions of minutes through one
flat-rate account.  Ironically, I was on the per-minute rate.

Anyway - I disconnected and concluded that Packet8 didn't want to deal
with us.  No loss to us - providers like Nufone and Magrathea and
others are there to take our business.
