[AG-TECH] VRVS-AccessGrid gateway

I'd like to qualify this statement:

"Note that the current release of AG3 does not have functioning unicast"

AG3 does indeed have functional unicast support.  It will not work for 
people who are behind an http proxy server, as reported in an open bug 
(http://bugzilla.mcs.anl.gov/accessgrid/show_bug.cgi?id=1583).  However, 
the unicast support in AG3 has been tested by many people in the 
community who have reported success.  Please _do_ use this 
functionality, and report any bugs you find to 
bugzilla.mcs.anl.gov/accessgrid so we can get them fixed and further 
improve this support.
