It's a little bit easier and more complicated. With SIP phones, I can
plug one (in the form of an iPaq, to cite a real-life example) into a
hotel Ethernet jack or 802.11 network and it automatically rings for my
calls, modulo what my CPL script says. No explicit forwarding is needed.
Unplugging it at night is not an option, since I want to still receive
emergency calls from my wife, say.
