Hey Chris,

I think, by enriching the audio environment of AG nodes, and perhaps being a
bit more specific about what we mean by "space" we might be able to do #3.
We could create a virtual lobby, with alot of work, using just audio.  It'd
require alot of processing, knowledge of spaces, and more speakers :-).

This *is* a direction we are interested in the AG evolving, the audio could
be significantly more rich than it is now.
