[asterisk-users] One mailbox for multiple extensions with individual greetings

Is there a way in Asterisk 11 to use a single voicemailbox for multiple
extensions while still hearing each extension's individual greeting?
Use case: someone has 2 numbers and wants all voicemail messages for
both numbers to end up in one mailbox. So when dialing 1234 and NOANSWER
you would hear "the person at extension 1234 is unavailable" and the
message would be stored in mailbox "mymailbox" and when dialing 6789 and
NOANSWER you would hear "the person at extension 6789 is unavailable"
and that message would also be stored in mailbox "mymailbox". The user
then dials an extension to reach mymailbox and hears all messages for
both the 1234 and 6789 numbers.
I think I can solve it by symlinking
/var/spool/asterisk/voicemail/default/1234/INBOX (and the other
directories too) but it would be nice if this could be done within the
If that's not possible, would adding an "extension" option to
app_voicemail.c solve this by decoupling the extension from the mailbox?
Thanks for any pointers.
