[AG-TECH] Loopback Multicast and linux

Relating this particularly to using VP, although it does apply to vic as well.
Under linux vic doesn't loopback the multicast to the localhost, so in the VP
window I can't see my own video.  I've done a simple 3 line hack to vic to
make this work, but was wondering if anyone else had comments on what the
default behaviour should be.

Do people reckon this should be a commandline option to vic?
