To follow up on the don't need to dial 9 to get out topic, in some 
places, there are so few phone prefixes, you can simply match them 
exactly.  Here's for where I live:

exten => _747XXXX,1,Dial
exten => _966XXXX,1,Dial
exten => _738XXXX,1,Dial
exten => _752XXXX,1,Dial
exten => _1NXXNXXXXXX,1,Dial
exten => _0NXXNXXXXXX,1,Dial
and something for international if you'd care to

it catches all numbers that could possibly be local and all long 
distances ones too.  Anything that doesn't hit one of these matches can 
be caught explicitly.  My wife didn't even notice the change.
