I have a few use cases:

1. Inbound calls come in to a DDI range I have, and need to be forwarded on to 
users' mobile phones.  This list of DDI --> mobile number mappings is fairly 
large, and maintained externally to the telephony platform, therefore I want 
to do a dynamic lookup of the DDI to find out which mobile number to forward a 
call on to.

2. Users dialling out have different destinations they're allowed to call, and 
again the details about who is allowed to call where are maintained by people 
nothing to do with operating the telephony platform, so I want to do a 
database lookup of each user as they place a call to see whether the 
destination they're dialling is in their allowed list.

3. Outbound providers charge us for placing calls to different destinations, 
and the prices change (typically monthly, but sometimes more often), and I 
need to do accurate live per-call accounting to keep track of users' and 
groups' spend levels.

I've done all the above in Asterisk using its ODBC connectivity, so I'm 
looking for the best way to execute arbitrary SQL statements in a FreeSwitch
