Hello All,

Not sure if this is the right place to suggest changes/new features. I have
a request for a new function for the load_balancer module.

Load_balancer knows how many resources are available for each gateway and
keeps track of active calls for each resource to distribute the calls
accordingly. This works well if the gateways's calls always go through the
load_balancer module. However, this is not always the case.

Let's say I have a number of gateways for termination and I use the
load_balancer module to distribute the calls. If there happen to be some
outgoing calls from these gateways, load balancer would not know about them
and the number of active calls and available resources would be inaccurate.

This can be fixed if there was a function to add a call to a gateway's
resource (maybe based on the IP address) without calling the load_balance()

This functionality can also be used when you are using resources of one of
your gateways but outside the load balancer module such as routing a test
number to a particular gateway and so on.
