For now i only experiment with new for me module - can it solve my work 
task or not.
So as i thought - module is old and not supported well. Maybe i should 
think about using dialplan/dispatcher instead of drouting, but some 
functionality i will have to implement it myself in KEMI in that 

About tmrec - write bugreport in github. As i understand module use 
time-base field even if i remove it content from rule.
