A few hundred to start with, but as with everything, I'd like to scale 
up as far as I can.  And, of course, it makes sense that "less people in 
a bridge is better than more" but that's not quite what I'm asking.

Is it more efficient to have, for example, 701 people in a confbridge 
room (700 muted users + 1 person yapping) or to have 700 people dialed 
in and just running the MusicOnHold application with said person yapping 
away via some audio source.
