-The restriction is done at the reflector. The White Pine ref has several
-conferences, one of which is for modem users, meaning that it's max is set
-to 28 or 30k. Another of their conferences allows you to transmit more in
-the range of 128k or maybe even higher.
-
-When you connect to the White Pine ref using the White Pine CLIENT, you will
-see a list of the conferences there, and the intended (modem, higher speed)
-uses for them.
-
-One of the things *I* have been waiting for White Pine to do to their client
-is to include automatic speed downshifting, sort of like modems doing auto
-speed matching. I should be able to set my client for the highest speed
-that my connection can handle, and then it should adjust DOWN depending on
-the reflector I connect to, but only for that session. For example, if I'm
-at my office on a high speed lan connection, and I set my max to 100k/300k
-(trans/recv) and I connect to a reflector that only allows you to transmit
-at 60k max, and receive at 100k max, then the client should be adjusted down
-to those speeds automatically, instead of getting a "Please set your..."
-message from the reflector.
-
-This is a very simple concept, and should be easy to implement, tho it would
-require changes to both the reflector and the client. The new reflector
-code would check the version of the client, and if it's new enough and has
-the capability, then the adjustment messages would be sent. If the client
-is too old, then you would just get the same old "Please adjust..." message.

We're making sure the upcoming 3.0 client has this functionality so that when
the 3.0 reflector comes out later on, the 3.0 clients will automatically
adjust to the reflectors settings.
