Hi, Marcin, Kingsley!

Indeed, if you'll be running only do_accounting("db", "cdr"), you will 
only get one record, at the end of the call, containing the `INVITE` 
method. That's more or less hardcoded there, and can't be changed. 
Giving a second thought about it, I somehow agree that's not 100% 
suggestive or correct, although I was the one who wrote that code :).
The idea was to create a CDR format compatible with previous formats of 
acc, which were requiring a method. But since a call consists of several 
methods, the easiest way to pick one was to pick the first one, namely 
INVITE. Hence the CDR always has an INVITE method.
If you have other thoughts on this, any feedback is welcome.

Best regards,

Răzvan Crainea
