The CU-SeeMe reflector will reflect vat streams -- but not NetPhone-native
streams.

NetPhone supports all the vat-standard formats supported by Maven (ie not
the Maven-only delta-mod encoding) PLUS it supports GSM audio, which runs
at 13200 bps for the audio data, and about 20% more for header overhead.
The current version of NetPhone (1.1.1) really needs a fast 040 Mac or
PowerMac to use GSM smoothly, but the upcoming 1.2 has an optimized GSM
codec which works on 030 machines.
