Regarding the Mac version, if ever an application cried out for Balloon
Help, CU-SeeMe is it. It could also be a place to display the IP addresses
of lurkers, having it appear in the balloon when the pointer is held over
the lurker's name.

I hope the dev team is planning to add Balloon Help soon - I think it's a
tremendously useful and greatly under-rated (and under-implemented) Mac
feature, especially if you install an extension that lets you turn it off
and on with a simple key-combo.
