Certainly - that's part of the point of doug. As far as numbers of 
calls, that's going to depend on the application, and the system it's 
running on. If you have to use inline DTMF detection, that will be a 
big hit (but you probably shouldn't need this). 

I know I've done standard tests of the conferencing application with 
20 participants, and it's handled that fine. The conference mixing is 
pretty CPU-intensive, so a simpler application should be able to 
scale much higher than that.

Moving to a threaded solution is unlikely to make anything any better.
