Description:The manager interface is very useful and needs to be altered to have a more robust protocol.

Responses need to be formated with formal headers includeing Content-Length  
The pipe should not be passed to the registering function rather the data should be fed to
a preprocessor that turns your reply into a hearder / body pair.

Multipart responses can be handled by sending a multipart start packet then severl mid section
packets and finally an end_multipart packets.

Events should not be delivered unless asked for that way the other end can prepare
for it and sit back and listen.


Attached is a perl mod I made for the current manager interface AstMan.pm to try and solve some bugs in Asterisk::Manager. I'd like to put this mod out of business with the above reccommendations.

the patch is already in cvs now to turn events on and off
there is a newer version of the perl mod too.

Is this still relevant?  With the post above I see that some of this has already been taken care of in cvs.
