Exactly.  This is part of the FreeSWITCH package.  FreeSWITCH is a SIP
telephone switch.  It's similar to the asterisk project.

Because it is an IP switch it may be used internally.  In that case
they may be OK with the higher rate ones.  Normally the 8K bitrate is
plenty.  The 16K bitrate may be marginally interesting.  The others
will seldom be used but we allow for them anyway.

Of course.  That's why this is the freeswitch-music package.  I will
also be adding freeswitch-sounds, freeswitch-base and the freeswitch
meta package.
