The only thing I've come up with is:

   data="now=${regex(${system date '+%F %T.%6N'}|(.+)|%1)}"

Note however that Brian West has said "I'd not recommend doing that, because 
every time you do a get var, you cause a pool allocation and doing this in a 
loop will make your session pool swell at the rate of whatever you're calling 
get_var on.  Doing anything at all inline with the dialplan is not the right 
approach.  your logic and info should be all external, keying off events either 
on ESL or custom modules you wrote."


All generalisations are inaccurate.
