Can't do it, at the moment. You can send private audio by selecting the
microphone Icon on the other persons window, but you have no audio/video. The
quick solution is to do a point-to-point connection, the ultimate privacy.

I would bet that you can have private conversations using Internet Relay Chat
(IRC), but I have never used it myself.
