Description:It would be great is app_directory could expect 3 digits (like it is now) but if 3 digits are not returned, try to expand the search criteria maybe by making NUMDIGITS a starting point instead of a absolute.  Also, there should be the means to exit without finding a name.  Getting sent back to s,1 would work for me.

Add an additional argument to the command line to specify firstname or lastname to base the search by.

I am no programmer but I did mess around a little.  Because of the way that the current code is written, if you set NUMDIGITS to 1 it errors everything out with "congesstion". If you set it to 2 it work better.  I don't think that it is going to be big deal to make the changes that I am requesting as long as two digits is the minimum.  If we want one digit, then there will have to be  bit more of a rewrite.

I'll second the request for firstname or lastname options.

I'll also REALLY second the request for being able to escape from "voicemail hell" when accessing the Directory application from an Auto Attendant queue. Toss in the ability to transfer to the operator would be helpful as well.

Looks like we've picked this up on bug ASTERISK-1453 ..
