(You may get more replies with a more 'on-target' subject. I lost 
interest in 'block comments' but was curious why the thread was still 
getting replies.)

Love templates. Use them in extensions.conf, sip.conf, and iax.conf every 

Here's an example from extensions.conf:

         same = n,                       agi(write-cdr)
         same = n,                       background(${PROMPTS-PATH}/0116)

Where the templates look like:

         exten = t,1,                    goto(${CONTEXT},s,1)
         exten = h,1,                    goto(finish-call,h,1)
       	exten = i,1,                    goto(${CONTEXT},s,1)
         exten = T,1,                    goto(max-time,s,1)
         exten = #,1,                    goto(main-menu,s,1)
         exten = s,1,                    verbose(1,[${EXTEN}@${CONTEXT}!${ANI}])

Note that the 's' template has to be the last template specified in the 
template list. Also, that '${EXTEN}@${CONTEXT}' makes for a quick 
cut-n-paste into the 'dialplan show' CLI command.

Thanks in advance,
