I don't think we need to conflate dialling *within* a call, and dialling
digits to place a call. Yes, there are some technologies (analogue
phones, ISDN with early-b3) where that's possible. But we don't support
any of those.

So if you want to implement a dialpad within the 'Dial a phone number'
dialog, I think you can go ahead and do that separately. Feel free to
shift the UI code out into a separate location so that you can call a
simple "give me a dialpad widget" function and re-use that part.

But let's do it after this patch has landed.

While you're at it, it would also be nice to support URIs of the form
'tel:+441234567890' which I have seen for example in the emails I get
telling me of a missed call. And while we'd at *that*, handling the
'meet: URIs that inform of us of Lync meetings, which pidgin-sipe can
also handle, would also be nice...

But again, not part of *this* patch :)
