Nice work! Have you thought about using binaries for the data that is sent
and received from FreeSWITCH instead of using Erlang strings?

Also, being able to return config/dialplan/directory data as tuple lists
instead of an XML string would probably be much more comfortable. This does
not necessarily have to happen in mod_erlang_event; there could be a wrapper
in Erlang that takes care of these conversions.
