Places a channel "on hold" in the switch, instead of in the phone.
Allows for a number of different options, including:
- Set caller in a place where the channel won't be hung up on while waiting for someone to talk to.
- Generic "hold" mechanism until you can connect it to the right person.
Please note that to retrieve a call that has been "parked", you'll have to bridge to them or transfer the call to a valid location.
TODO Couldn't find any instructions how to do that, so probably via the channel's UUID?

Note that the park application takes no arguments, so the data attribute can be omitted in the definition.

mod_valet_parking- Park calls with a "slot number" which can later be retrieved by that number.
