I know...  ATM the moment I'm trying to bring FS into the organization
in stages,  "parallel" to Asterisk as much as possible.  Once I get
through this initial phase I can begin to think about how to do things
the "FreeSWITCH way" (and do all of the cool stuff I think I'll be
able to do).  First things first, though - replicate existing
functionality and make as painless as possible!
