Hi Lee,

First of all Asterisk has "torture" mode :)
Secondly, I can do some of the routing without AGI, but using
extentions.conf and wiring dialplan, including the issue with
telemarketing :)

Anyway, I wrote 8 months ago a fast agi using lnet, but it sucks, and
I lack the time to rewrite it, so I thought in merge your code into
lnet (instead of mine).

And if I'll require to write some AGI/FastAGI and I'll be able to use
technology I'll choose, I'll use your library :)
