So VoIP is standardized; and most people use either H.323 or SIP. I don't
know what Dialpad use but I chose SIP because it is the way everyone is
moving. There are definately some providers that can provide calls from Myth
into the PSTN and when I have some code worth releasing I will collate a
list of them and hopefully people out there can do some testing. NAT and
Firewalls are very fixable in very standard ways and implementing this is on

As noted by another poster, SIP is used by many IP phones, but it has
some serious issues with NAT and firewalls. Asterisk's IAX2 protocol
solves some of those issues. There is an open-source IAX library
at http://iaxclient.sf.net/ that I think has been updated to IAX2, and
makes a good building block.
I'm currently doing some testing with Asterisk at home - makes a hell
of an answering machine :-) If anyone is interested, I've got a little
AGI-BIN script that can be put in an Asterisk dialplan to send callerid
info to Myth (via broadcast).
