We now have about 20 users of CU-SeeMe on our campus, and will be
installing it in some high-level administrator's offices. We are
creating a directory of user addresses and will be incorporating that
into the Nicknames file. The idea is that we can make private "videophone"
calls among ourselves.

But in order for that to work, it appears that none of us could remain
connected to the reflector, since that then precludes private direct
connections. This is not good. How can we solve this dilemma? It would
be very helpful if CU-SeeMe would be able to receive direct connections
at the same time it is connected to a reflector, and perhaps put the reflector
connection "on standby" temporarily.
