[Freeswitch-users] Route outbound-only calls through XML dialplan?

I've been using FS for almost a year now as a call-blaster type of 
device (originating SIP calls and playing wav/mp3 when user answers). 
In the past I was simply sending all calls to a single SIP switch, 
but now I need to think about routing to several different SIP 
switches, based on NPA-NXX for example.

The XML dialplan would seem perfect for this, but that's only 
triggered by an incoming call, right? I am not sure how to cause 
'outbound-only' calls to go through it (since Freeswitch is 
originating the call, it only has 1 leg, if that makes sense). 
Currently I am originating via XML-RPC from a Perl script, using a 
command like 'originate <sip address> &playback(wav file)'. The final 
caveat is that we not use javascript to originate the call because I 
am still having problems with garbage collection during capacity 
testing (the box is pushing out 20cps, 30-second calls, 600 
simultaneous calls).
