exten => 256 ,1 ,Dial(SIP/256,20)  <-- isn't valid
exten => 256,1,Dial(SIP/256,20) does not.  <-- is valid.

The key is no spaces.

So, is this a request to make it so that Asterisk does not care about spaces in the wrong places in a dialplan?  I'm not sure I'm clear on the reason for this note.  Asterisk currently uses spaces only between comparitors and values, and between the first three elements of each line ("exten => 1,1,NoOp")

I am new to asterisk and the individual on IRC that helped me figure out what was wrong asked me to submit a bug report on it.  I guess the behavior was just unexpected from a newbie perspective.

Should this be closed? or should we think about making asterisk a bit loose on the extensions.conf parsing?  I vote for not doing that.
