My customer-internal context doesn't have a _X. in it actually, only the
customer-fwd context does.

customer-internal contains a bunch of includes for internal extensions and
for routes for long-distance,local, toll calls etc.

It's only the forward that has and needs the wildcard match as I need the
billing code in that context to be executed before the call goes into the
customer-internal context.

I suppose I could replace the _X. with a bunch of NXXX rules in
customer-forward but it seems needlessly complex to do so there as
customer-internal already controls what can be dialed/forwarded/transferred
to by the customer.

A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher
a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts,
build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders,
cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure,
program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly.
Specialization is for insects.
