Totally we will have three sites in the meeting.  Therefore I am 
thinking letting the VRVS user connect to the meeting via point-to-point 
into the bridge and UNM and OU can just run on the normal AG.  I 
remember doing such hack back in the AG1.x days.  I get my VRVS RAT 
connected to the NCSA unicast bridge to the Mosaic venue, but theVRVS 
VIC and AGtk-3 VIC just don't want to connect to it.  I am testing in 
Mosaic right now.
