Generally the preferred method when you're doing this programatically 
anyways is to use an external script through the Asterisk Manager 
Interface to generate your calls.

Luckily, Russell Bryant has recently create an amioriginate.py[0] script 
which he's using as an example in the upcoming Asterisk: The Definitive 
Guide 4e book.
