Re: [GnomeMeeting-devel-list] Re: You are missing the point

Your mail message gave me a good feeling.  I have a suggestion:

Phase 1: calling GnomeMeeting from Gaim.  There would be a
GtkToggleButton (in button style, not checkbox) called "Video" in the
Gaim chat window, which when depressed (not sad! =) would launch
GnomeMeeting and initiate a session with the remote user.

Phase 2: embedding GnomeMeeting from Gaim.  The same button would
remain.  But now doing so would unhide a GnomeMeeting pane, that is, a
GtkContainer which is empty, and upon unhiding, a GM Bonobo control
would embed itself there and start a video session with the other user. 
Since you do not need to see your face all the time, below the video
window can be a button that lets you toggle between the other user's and
your own face (video feed), but it will DFAULT to seeing the other one,
or perhaps your own face til the video link is established.

Phase 2 would entail the bonobification of GnomeMeeting, and the
preparation of GM for reception of the GM bonobo component.

Let's hope this frankenstein doesn't go mad on us.  Or that lightning
bolts aren't necessary to bring it to life (oh, my old burnt mobo).

For this to be successful, it's crucial that the GM bonobo component
does as much as it can automatically to ease the task of the Gaim
people.  Perhaps GM could export different components with different
functionality (GMSimpleBonoboControl, GMBonoboControl,
GMComplicatedBonoboControl, GMDriveMeLikeAFerrariBonoboControl).
