This is actually pretty slick, but in the context of my particular need
it seems like it would be akin to prescribing orbital death lasers when
what I really need is a hammer. I am looking more into using OpenSIPS
with route headers for now since that might seem to have the fewest
moving parts. 

I think for the ultra-paranoid asterisk deployments this might be an
option, though you do ultimately run into the same problem of handling
media in a VM which can get sticky, and of course of replicating
whatever it was that caused the crash etc (insert paranoid scenarios
