Description:SIMPLE support would be great, especially as the new Grandstream 102D sould support it.
Would be great to dertemine if someone is available at the phone or not. Could also be interesting in many applications (display queue stati, mailbox waiting indicator, etc. )

We already support *some* amount of checking on the phone, implemented for the SNOM phone.  It requires adding "hints" in the dialplan, e.g.

exten => 6275,hint,SIP/marko ; I'm on SIP/marko

Then you should be able to subscribe to 6275 or something like that.

Hm, I tried that with the windows messenger. I am able to logon and to subscribe to all extension. They seem to be online all the time though.

I know that it add complexity but I think that full SIMPLE support would enable many new intersting applications with asterisk, especially in combination with upcoming SIP/SIMPLE hardphones.

I'm going to make this an "experimental feature".  You'll probably need to find some asterisk coders who will get excited about working on this project so that you guys can work on some code.  I'll be available in #asterisk on irc.freenode.net to give you any assistance or advice you might want.

As defined in RFC3428.

Marking SIP-related requests so we'll be able to find them

SIMPLE or any IM will require the ability to send a text message outside of the context of a call.  Maybe we can talk about this at the asterisk conference?

Good idea!

SIMPLE is going to need tcp isn't it?

I'm going to suspend this since it has been brought up as to be discussed at AstriCon.  We can re-open this when we're ready to proceed.
