There are many other real-time technologies that are probably a little
out of scope, like real-time performance monitoring (Ganglia) and
real-time market data systems but what you've described does sound like
it is in the real-time communication domain, thanks for clarifying, it
is good to hear about the things you are doing.  Even in the Asterisk
world, they use the term "real-time" to refer to their database-backed
configuration (as opposed to static configuration files) because it does
a database lookup every time it routes a call.

Could you please send your original email on the Free-RTC list as well
so it is tracked in the thread there?  Not everybody participating in
the lounge is on the summit list.
