[asterisk-users] Realtime Context

I'll give you an example process flow

Our customer logs onto our VoIP Portal and orders a SIP Geographic number
Geo number is successfully ordered which inserts an entry into our 
extensions table in MySQL DB in the default context which has a goto 
command to a newly created specific context for handling the incoming on 
that number.
The customer goes to the dial plan managing section of the portal and 
sets the number to ring an extension of his followed by going to 
voicemail. In the back end 2 new inserts are made into the extensions 
table for the newly created context.
Also, an insert is made into a table to say that the extensions table 
has been updated.

A cron runs and sees that the extensions table has been updated.
this gets a distinct list of contexts from the extensions table and 
writes each one to a new extensions.con putting in the realtime switch 
for each context.
The cron then executes a dialplan reload

If you can see a more elegant way of doing the above so that no 
intervention is required by anyone other that the customer, please let 
me know as I'm always willing to learn better ways of doing things.

Also, please bear in mind that we offer a hosted service for customers 
so we have lots of different companies all working off the same server(s)
