Well, I decided I didn't like the way the autopatch default overrides 
(patchfarenddisconnect, patchnoct, patchdialtime) were implemented in 
app_rpt.pre-0-46-4.c so I ripped them out and started over.

This method provides much more flexibility. Instead of specifying settings in 
the node configuration block, you now override the defaults in the function 
block for autopatch up. In other words, autopatchup can can optionally take 
comma delimited setting=value pairs.

There are currently 5 setting=value pairs defined in app_rpt.pre-0-46-6.c:

Override default context with "string"


Specify the max number of milliseconds between phone number )


Automatically disconnect when called party hangs up


Don't send repeater courtesy tone during autopatch calls


Don't send dial tone, or connect messages. Do not send patch down message when 
called party hangs up

Example: 123=autopatchup,dialtime=20000,noct=1,farenddisconnect=1

The example will set a 20 second limit on dial time between phone number 
digits, not send the courtesy tone during the time the patch is up, and 
disconnect the patch if the called party hangs up.

By redoing this, we gain a whole bunch more flexibility because we can define 
several different DTMF sequences for autopatchup which can direct the 
autopatch to act differently. By defining 3 different patch up sequences, you 
can now for example, have one for emergency numbers, one for normal numbers, 
and one for system information messages. You can set the individual autopatch 
up sequences to use different contexts which can then be added to 

Note: I did not remove the autopatch up and down messages from the telemetry 
block. These are still there so that you can override the default up and down

Note:  are running asterisk or earlier, you will need to uncomment the 
#define for OLD_ASTERISK at the top of the file.
