It is Ok to use another interface when not avaiable, but I want use MY
interface when it's avaiable.
You could change that these settings are not written to gconf-registry.
That would rwsult in following behavior:
Day 1 - Offline
gnomemeeting: ppp0 - not avaiable -> let's use eth0 instead ( but don't
write eth0 to gconf )
Day 2 - Online
gnomemeeting: ppp0 - avaiable -> let's use ppp0
