That's all very useful.  Just one entreaty:

Split up vbox into the part that is normally on a machine
w/ ISDN hardware (vboxgetty, vboxd, ...) and what is on a
client machine w/o ISDN hardware (/usr/bin/vbox, ...).  So
one can have the vbox client on a terminal w/o depending on
tcl (2.5 MB) or on ISDN hardware.  OTOH, vbox would be
relatively small, so vbox-isdn may depend on vbox or not.

vbox-isdn - ISDN answering machine
vbox      - remote capable answering machine access program
