	<title>Overview</title>
	<para>
	This module implement various functions and checks related to SIP message
	handling and URI handling.
	</para>
	<para>
	It offers some functions related to handle ringing. In a parallel forking
	scenario you get several 183s with SDP. You don't want that your customers
	hear more than one ringtone or answer machine in parallel on the phone.
	So its necessary to drop the 183 in this cases and send a 180 instead.
	</para>
	<para>
	This module also provides a function to answer OPTIONS requests which
	are directed to the server itself. This means an OPTIONS request
	which has the address of the server in the request URI, and no
	username in the URI. The request will be answered with a 200 OK
	with the capabilities of the server.
	</para>
	<para>
	To answer OPTIONS request directed to your server is the easiest
	way for is-alive-tests on the SIP (application) layer from remote
	(similar to ICMP echo requests, also known as <quote>ping</quote>,
	on the network layer).
