That is correct.  bridge_softmix is optimized for multi-party conferencing
where passing
control frames such as hold/unhold to other parties in the bridge is not a
good idea.  For
example, if three parties are in a bridge and if party A pressed its hold
button then that
should not necessarily prevent parties B and C from talking to each other.
bridge_softmix for a normal two party call is a last resort.  It works
reasonably well as a
normal two party bridge technology but it is computationally expensive and
not intended
for that purpose.
