This is good information for the documentation team. I was thinking  
about a how-to on setting up a SOHO PBX with FS and you've given me  
some great thoughts on just what that how-to should cover.

I will put this subject on the agenda for next week's docs conference  
call. Keep on the lookout for more information on this subject.
