[Users] Dispatcher module - Does it actually work?

Andy (or anyone who cares to jump in here),
From the openser docs:
"A gateway matches a request if user part of Request-URI and "From" URI match the prefix and From pattern of the gateway. "
Does that mean that I need to have a gw table entry for every single possible combination of every user making calls and every number in the universe they may dial? That's insane! I must be missing something here.
Oh, and what is an 'RPID URI'???? Never heard of it and I can't find it mentioned anywhere outside the lcr module.

	Correct me if I am wrong here, but the sketchy docs at openser.org seem to imply that I am going to need to have multiple rows in my mysql table 'gw' for every single user who places calls? Is that correct? Is there some way to trim this down?

		Yes. You have to define a set of destinations which you can load in the

		argument in load_gws()).
