Related to the idea of a Call Firewall

The usual per-caller ringers would be nice to have, of course.

Because I'm such a miserable, antisocial hermit, I'd like to have a
mini-IVR on my phone to do something like an audio captcha /
challenge-response spam filter.

Unknown caller, phone says: "take the top number on the left side of
your keypad, add the middle number of the middle row, and enter the

Annoying caller, phone says: "Sorry, the voice mailbox beloinging to
<read phone number> is full and cannot accept new messages. Goodbye.
*hangs up*"

Don't feel like talking right now? send "ATH" to the modem, the gsm
call will be dropped, caller is directed to telco's voicemail and you
can make outgoing calls... at least that's how it works on my RAZR

Regex matching would be nice - calls matching a name, or a range of
numbers, or some other attribute can be handled internally

Of course, while the phone is playing IVR, you can't be making phone
calls and you're using airtime and batteries...

GDB has a 'break' feature; why doesn't it have 'fix' too?
