According to the example I posted earlier (Example 13) it all seemed 
configurable as all of the steps taken were separate actions with 
parameters, which were completely configurable, so, naturally, I 
presumed that I could tweak this a bit to suit my own needs, isn't that so?

I will - thanks for the pointer. I haven't reached the "installation" 
stage yet - I am yet to decide whether to use FreeSWITCH, but will 
certainly look at the sound/media resources provided with it. Thanks 
again for your input.
