a colleague from school once created a setup that involved asterisk and
pd (i don't know, why he's actually not responding to this thread....).
he ran asterisk over oss2jack in order to use jack to establish an audio
connection between them. if asterisk would directly have access to jack,
that would be awsome of course.
