Description:Not really a bug but just a case or housekeeping. If am on SIP/1000 and I connect to ChanSpy as follows:

exten => 2000,1,ChanSpy(all|qb)

ChanSpy will do it job and connect me to myself as I an a bridged channel.  

It would 'idiot proof' ChanSpy f it can be made to ignore the channel it is currently Bridged with. It would also help if instead of checking for Channel it would check for Application and if application = self do not bridge.

This will allow for more that one ChanSpy per system.

I will be bridged into myself

ChanSpy *cannot* spy on itself.  You are simply spying on both legs of a bridged call.

if you have a bridge A -> B

A and B will appear to be identical from a spying standpoint.
