Sorry to reply to myself, but addendum:

Audio recording should be easily possible via the Asterisk server
itself.  As for transcription, if "Someone" can wrangle some volunteers
to do it, then it will be transcribed.  Frankly, I think that would be a
waste of energy compared to other needs; as long as the audio is
available, the purpose is served.
