Well they never gave away more than one number per customer anyway.  You
sound like you need a bunch, like say a 100.

There are other possibilities for a home phone, including linking google
voice with, or using the google talk trunk that both asterisk
and freeswitch can use.  That way google voice is your phone number, and
you can also use it for outbound calling too (free for now, probably a
penny a minute next year).
