with func_odbc, in the definitive asterisk guide, they were suggesting the possibility that part, or perhaps all of, the dialplan could be written as SQL statement!?

First off, that sounds like a good idea to me, but the tone of the authors was suggesting not so much, but that it was a personal preference.

From a naive perspective, why SQL statements at all? Why not just database config and data instead?

    We use a combination of func_odbc calls to drive static dialplan. Be aware that there is currently a bug if you use ODBC with MySQL, and your primary database is offline The system does not properly roll to backup database servers. This often causes asterisk to lock up requiring a restart.
