The protocol is brilliant -- thanks to Emil. I just made it work with the 
webrtc API.

It basically leverages the separation of media description and transport 
in Jingle to insert the bridge into the media path.

Right, I'll see if I can add one showing how to use this with Jingle until 
next week. Implementing a conference focus is somewhat complicated, but 
the important point is that the clients participating in the colibri 
session don't care much, for them it looks like a single session (with 
multiple videos).
