[AG-TECH] EventListener and QuickBridge integration

I just want to check with people here to see if anyone has the same 
situation as ours and done some work on it.

We're using AccessGrid 1.x on our site. Unfortunately we have to rely on 
QuickBridge here because our campus multicast network support is broken, 
and the networking group cannot give us an estimate as to when it would 
be fixed. Fortunately we were able to get a dedicated node at some other 
site which has very reliable multicast connections so we can control it to 
work as a QuickBridge.

We could setup our AG site through extra manual steps as described in the 
AccessGrid QuickBridge HOWTO document, but we want to eliminate as much 
manual effort as possible so that it won't look prohibitive to operate for 
our non-techie guys. I'm considering of hacking a BridgeResourceManager 
on the QuickBridge node similiar to DisplayResourceManager. I understand 
that our situation also requires a little change in the EventServer but 
that shouldn't cost us too much time.

I will be very appreciative to hear any comments, concerns, or your   
experience if you have worked on the similiar situation and worked out 
some solutions.

Thank you very much.
