I'm not disallowing its use, just the install of the "full" client.

That was my initial solution,  "use WebMessenger".

However, there is (apparantly) a need for "meetings" .. chats among more than  
two people and the current version of WebMessenger is one-to-one only.

Also, several of the senior bosses think they want cameras to "stare down" 
their minions, and the web clients do not do this either.  (This is harder 
for me to argue against, as "dirty looks" are a significant component of _my_ 
management strategy.)
