Audio on Windows version

I'm wondering about the prospect of audio send/receive capability for
CU-Seeme for Windows. The little ReadMe.txt note that came with the program
tells us to keep dreaming -- that it won't be possible anytime soon, and
when it is, it won't be practical. Let's hear more.

What work is being done on making the Windows version more fully functional?

And a question about modem speeds: I recently installed a Connectix
Quickcam for Windows and it worked very well in conjunction with my 14.400
bps modem. I'm trying out a 28.800 bps modem tonight and I can't notice any
difference. Video works just as well; audio works just as poorly. I'm
trying to decide whether to invest in a higher-speed modem. Why should I?
If CU-Seeme works just as well, then I might as well stay with what I have.
Now let me know: when audio capability does become available for the Windows
version, will it work with a 14.400 bps modem? Will it work with 28.800
bps? I remember seeing a note to the effect that 16 kbps was the threshold.
Does anyone know more about this?

I'm dying to know.
