You would use a combination of storing the UUID... in the internal  
db... see insert in the default dialplan... then a code to get that  
out of the db... then run intercept on it using the value returned  
from the db.  See default config's

Store it something like this:

<action application="db" data="insert/last_dial_ext/$ 

Then use it something like this:

     <extension name="intercept-ext">
       <condition field="destination_number" expression="^\*\*(\d+)$">
         <action application="answer"/>
         <action application="intercept" data="${db(select/ 
         <action application="sleep" data="2000"/>
