QuickCam and Sound

We all know that CU-SeeMe will not, as of yet, work with the built in
microphone in the Connectix QuickCam. My question is, why?

Since other programs that use a microphone will work with the QuickCam mic
(inculding Apple's sound control panel) my only guess is that CUSM does not
use a standard sound input routine and, thus, has not allowed for the
possibilitiy of sound coming in from the serial port instead of a
microphone port.

I was wondering this because I have a new Power Macintosh 6100/60 which did
not come with a PlainTalk microphone and every place I've called has no
idea when new mics will be in stock. Thus, I cannot use CU-SeeMe to its
fullest just yet.
