In my experience, most people use members-only rooms instead of 
password-protected rooms. You could handle that case in a similar way, 
i.e., make it password-protected, kick everyone out, and force them to 
rejoin. If they don't know the password, they can't get in. I realize 
that's a bit harsh, though...
