Currently, this is a planned feature for the first commercial version of CUSeeMe (by WPSI).

I also believe this will be available in the public version as well (via Cornell).

"How it will be implemented may vary".

WPSI demo'd a pre-release version at the DVC show which allowed CU-SeeMe to be a "helper app." for a number of browsers. And yes it was also capable of automatically connecting to a reflector site (or single point site). In that version it was done via a hyperlink to a CUSeeMe config. file on the web server system.

It's in the plans,
