FWIW, I've participated via voice on a number of occasions, it's hard in
long meetings but doable.  We did webex I think for one of the Houdini
meetings that was (I think?) overseas for me that I couldn't attend and
there were a few of us attending that way -  Pretty sure that was at a
mozilla office and they used a projector and our webcam and that was not
too bad at all.
