So, that wiki page not having answered my question: is there in fact
enough power in the not-really-a-programming-language that is the
dialplanning syntax anyway to capture the appropriate information in a
"variable" so it can be handed to that function?

Or is there some other way to do that.

Or (I'll say it softly) is there no way to fo that sort of thing?

That spot in the architecture is the place where I expected to find a
"real" programming language -- not necessarily a specific traditional
language, but something derived from ALGOL, rather than RPG.  :-)
