[Freeswitch-users] Called-party state/presence as dialplan condition

Ok, well, I have thought of a way to do something similar to this...  I guess a better question would be:

Is there a way that I could save / access the output of one command from another?

Ex.  <action application="set" data="some_data='show channels'"/>

Where show channels is the command to execute.

I suppose if this can't be done in the dialplan, from what  I could see, it could be done with the javascript module?  Am I right?

I know (or at least I think I know) that with sofia, if you try to call a party and they are unavailable, you'll get a busy state back, and you can decide whether to go on from there or not, but if you're not using sofia (in this case, I'm using fifo), is there a way to find out the called party's state prior to actually calling the party to create a condition in the dialplan to act based on that state?

I guess what I'm getting at is that I would like to modify the default dialplan such that based on the state of 5900, either pickup or park the call at 5900 so only one number needs to be used to access the called party parked on 5900.  Currently the call will show as busy on 5900 and can be transferred using the same number, which is cool, but accessing the lot requires a different number to be called.  (That can be kind of hard-to-impossible to do with a single soft key on some/most sip phones.)
