only one person will be in read-write mode at a time...the others are
forced into read-only mode.  if you use the '^Ecf' escape sequence,
you'll grab read-write mode and force the previous writer to read-only
mode.  and if the read-write person disconnects, it will pass read-write
mode back to the latest read-only person who wanted read-write mode.
you can also use 'console -f <name>' to automatically force read-write
and bump the other person to read-only.
