[SR-Users] rtpengine port allocation & recycling [solved]

I do like rtpengine_manage() philosophically, and agree it's easier to
use and handles the case where the SDP offer is in the reply from the UAS.
I used to use it. However, it doesn't behave correctly in certain route
script contexts. Here's an example from my own environment:
# Lots of stuff that can be executed either with or without
# transaction already having been created, e.g. use send_reply(),
# never just sl_send_reply() or t_reply(), etc.
# Load some more routes maybe, create new
$rd = "new_host";
This behaves mostly as you'd expect, _except_ in the case of a branch
timeout. If there's a _timeout_ per se, e.g. branch #1 host did not
respond, then in the subsequent branch #2 attempt, rtpengine_manage() in
the branch_route will send a 'delete' command rather than an updated
Perhaps the root of the problem is that I am calling a request_route
from a failure_route, but I don't know how else to recycle the huge
corpus of logic that's in XYZ_TRY. I'm open to better suggestions.
Notwithstanding that, there may be other exotic cases as well where
rtpengine_manage() doesn't do the right thing. Either way, for this
reason I do not use it.
