[Freeswitch-users] failover based on initial INVITE timeout

That's exactly what I'm trying to do. This used to be implemented with
openser and on timeout it will mark destination as inactive so
subsequent calls don't get sent to dead gateways.
If originate_timeout is intended for something else, then maybe the
example given in the wiki can be changed, because may be a bit
misleading for someone trying to do failover.
