Jeremy, I believe I recall various emails mentioning this feature of the
AG2.1.2 venue server. Perhaps it is fixed in AG2.2 (as Sugree suggested
in another email).

There's now a testing version of AG2.2 for Slackware 9.1 at
http://www.ap-accessgrid.org/AG2/. Packages for wxPythonGTK and xawtv
(prerequisites fo AG2.2) are there too.

I wouldn't use it for production just yet, but I would appreciate
testing reports if you have a spare machine. In particular, the venue
client sometimes hangs as it changes rooms. I'm not sure if this is a
bug or something wrong with my building/packaging system.
