I am happy to report that I have (partial) success!  I used HylaFSP
(commercial HylaFAX Windows client) to send a FAX to HylaFAX running on the
FS machine, connecting to /dev/FS0.

The FAX wasn't received 100%, because it didn't go through the T.38
gateway, and the Caller-ID didn't get set, so that's what I'd like to fix

I already have this rule in the outgoing dialplan:

    <condition field="${fax_call}" expression="^true$" break="never">
      <action application="set" data="fax_enable_t38=true"/>
      <action application="set" data="execute_on_answer=t38_gateway peer"/>

I set the $fax_call variable (and the $outbound_caller_id_number variable)
in the directory entry that's used by the ATA that the analog FAX machine

What I want to do now is set the same variables on channels opened by the
/dev/FS0 modem.  Where should I put these variables?
