The issue is more about initiating calls: partysip have no way to initiate
outgoing requests without receiving one. The only way is to allocate a new

In fact, you surely don't need this in a plugin but you should instead
write a new application. If you need info from partysip, then you can
write info in a database updated by the new 'alarm' plugin. Then your new

A sql plugin for writing info about users is already available in
partysip. You can probably extend it to write the additionnal info you
