But what is the difference between "bridge" and "originate" in
handling dials? "bridge" connects two calls together, but "originate"
seems to be a part of "bridge".
If we make a "bridge", both legs seem to bee in the same session, when
using socked outbound.

We make a "bridge" as follows:
$this->invokeMessage("bridge", "sofia/internal/1001 at");

When we use "originate" (which we prefer, because we do not want to
connect both call with each other immediately), we use the following
$this->invokeCommand("API originate
{origination_caller_id_number=123455}sofia/internal/1001 at

The problem is, that the new call is now in another call-session and
we do not know how to bring the calls together.

Does it have something to do with "API"? If yes, is there a way to use
"originate" with "sendmsg"?
