Group chat: Campfire

From the 37signals team, that has some great web 2.0 products on the "shelf" (you can't really say that, can you, of web 2.0?), there's is some great news for lovers of free, but still-very-useful-even-in-business-environments, software. It is called Campfire. I haven't tried it yet... but this seems very promising. The totally-free-for-life version, allows up to 5 persons simultaneously.
In their own words: "Campfire lets you set up secure, password-protected web-based chat rooms in just seconds. Invite a client, a colleague, or a vendor to a chat. Set up a room on your intranet for internal communications. Conduct meetings with people around the world. The uses are plentiful. Up to 60 people can chat at once. You can even browse previous chats by person, room, or date. No special software required — a web browser is all you need."
Can we tie it in in Sakai maybe?
