Both of those seem difficult as the process is split between Asterisk
and an external script.

True.  This or John Kiniston's idea of lock files could work.  I guess I
would need to have some process to move it back if it is still there
after an hour or so in case something went wrong.  The same sort of
thing would be needed for John's solution as well.

It sure would be nice if I could query Asterisk to see if the fax
process was still running.
