as for relibility, I cant tell you the number of times a Verizon tech,
would be out to install a phone line and steal one of our dsl lines cuase
it did not have a tone.

As a (serious) question, why not stick a tone on it? How much
can an oscillator at the CO plus some trivial passive low pass
filters (one set per line), cost? (Or, if you aren't the DLEC,
stick it at cust prem). Just don't use the trace tone... (translation
to US terminology may be required)
