Description:It would be really helpful if timestamps were printed to the left of the messages in the console.

Should not be too difficult if everything that writes to the console
uses a wrapper function to actually do the writes to the console.
Can someone confirm if this is the case?

you can change ASTERISK_PROMPT in asterisk.c.

But what we really need is a customizable prompt. Something like:

export ASTERISK_PROMPT='[%d %t] %h CLI> '

where d=date, t=time, h=hostname, etc.

heison: not what he was asking for.  He's asking for the verbose messages to have a timestamp

I've included a diff for a dirty, ugly hack of this feature.  modifiy it, love it, do whatever to it you wish.  

It *IS* ugly, but this is one of my first few attempts at C coding, let alone patches :P

Example of output:

Mar 24 17:36:02     -- Accepting DIAL from, formats = 0x4
Mar 24 17:36:02     -- Executing VoiceMailMain("IAX2[JoshR@JoshR]/9", "1001") in new stack
Mar 24 17:36:02     -- Playing 'vm-password' (language 'en')
