To clarify, certain areas have a dialling hack that allows you to dial
either +1 880 to get an equivalent 800 number, or +880, as long as you
pay the charges.  It's been a while since this came up on c.d.t, but I
believe it was a Canada hack, implemented the former way, rather than an
international hack, implemented the latter.

Of course, the former hack will die the minute someone allocates 880,
but I think that code's reserved.
