Thanks for that explanation.  It umm.. explains a lot. :)

So, I think the temp solution is to use loopback+delayed no media.

but the real "solution" is to either drive the forked dialing logic
externally (event socket) or consider supporting groupings in the
bridge which.. umm...  is gonna be a pain and will need buy in from
from Tony and other core devs since that is a core (no pun intended)
piece of code that nearly everything uses.

I'm not sure I want to take a wack at it.
