confBridge could work here, but how do I throw an existing bridge into 
the confbridge? That is, if A <-> B exists, how do I trigger the entry 
into confbridge. Once there, it's pretty easy to see how C would join.

maybe EVERY call is done with confbridge. Would that cause some other 

I don't necessarily have DAHDI, so the SLA stuff wouldn't work. Just as 
well, since my head hurt reading about it.
