Of course the real-life answer to this is:

1. Press a button under the counter that:
	a) alerts the Homeland Security goons
	b) causes the phone on the counter to ring
2. Say "just a second, sir, while I take this call"
3. Make up a conversation
4. Periodically reassure the customer that "It'll just be a minute"

Is there an SMTP analog to this?  I'm aware of 200, 400, and 500 series responses to DATA queries... is there any "just a second, sir" code?
