I did have such an option in an earlier version of quickbridge but I took 
it out because it increased the likelyhood of ending up with a feedback 
configuration where 2 bridges start echoing each other.

Anyway it would need to be started by hand for each session.

The current built in bridge in AG is so easy to use that I would just 
stick with that for the time being.
Thats what we do when out multicast breaks.
