This is a bad idea for the following reasons:

1. There is considerable overlap in some of the questions that are asked -- which
cameras are best to use, etc. Two lists would mean that some of these questions
would be asked twice as often.

2. The assumption here is that there will always only be two versions of CUSEEME,
one for the Mac, one for the PC. This assumption is likely to be incorrect -- I
know that an Amiga version of CUSEEME is well under way. I would not at all be
surprised to see versions appearing for other platforms as well.
