I've been thinking about how scheduling would play into this new VV server 
model.  In particular, how the scheduler I developed might be modified to 
fit into this model quite nicely.  Without being fully aware of what all 
this new VV spec entails, I was thinking about how I could allow everyone 
to run their own scheduler, but enable them all to talk to each other so 
that someone at NCSA could seamlessly, using NCSA's scheduler, find and 
join a meeting that is scheduled on EVL's scheduler, for example.
So I am definitely interested in learning more about the details of the new 
VV model.
