Thank you. I'm more clear about the logic.  I read some code, but need  
to read more to totally understand it.

Here are two problems:
1) Is it possible to present the original caller id of the customer to  
the agent?
2) If the agent already on a call(busy), it would still call the  
extension and sim UAs generally allows multiple calls comes in. Is  
there a way to limit an agent can answer only one call?(mod_limit  
seems only limit outbound calls) Or do we need other complicated logic  
the figure out is the callee is busy before call them(possible by  
query the core db)?

So it is supposed to hang up the caller when call_timeout timeout? I  
see it's deprecated on wiki:

Deprecated - Use originate_timeout or leg_timeout.
Controls how long (in seconds) to ring the B leg of a call when using  
the bridge application.

But what i'm actually confusing is "<member timeout=x ..." in  
fifo.conf. It seems should worked as leg_timeout, but not(on my box  
using a very recent trunk version).

Thanks again.
