Ah, sorry, ignore this above. You have a correct understanding of the
wiring already. The additional thing is this: Inside of [polywrap]
there's a [route $2] which filters out only the messages whose first
element matches the voice number. The voice number is automatically
generated by [poly]! 

Matching messages are sent to the actual custom abstraction.  The
non-matching messages are sent further along the first outlet to the
next [polywrap] where another [route] is waiting for the correct voice
number and so it goes on.
