[asterisk-users] "Call me now" outbound calls in a queue

That approach only works if there are any agents that are not busy on a 
call - I could pick one, take them out of the queue then connect the 
call.  If all agents are busy, I need to be able to insert the request 
into the queue so that it gets processed in sequence with the inbound calls.
