Description:Please see the [Bridge Construction|http://svn.asterisk.org/svn/asterisk/team/group/bridge_construction/] Team project for the current status of this work.

Refactor the dial API to really be a new bridging technology - aka the "early bridge". The bridge should perform an abstraction on top of the existing Dial API such that when a channel answers, all other channels are hung up and the bridge automatically transitions to a two-party bridge.

This will allow call pick up to simply be a bridge operation between a ringing channel in an early bridge and the channel that wants to perform the call pickup.
