Remember that the delay on the international circuits is added to any
processing delays within our hardware/software. But the good part is that
most circuits are cable now, so there is less circuit-delay. Billsf is an
absolute expert on international telephony, so if we ever need to know real
specific things, we should ask firstname.lastname@example.org. He should definitely
be an advisor on the design and debugging of the phone interface part.
Also: echo suppresion of looped back audio can be a problem (especially for
people with speakers next to their microphone, but also for people with
ordinary phones (no phone is a perfect hybrid)). Let's not worry about it
now though. It will work without, it's just a little more comfortable if it
