Timbuktu Pro for Telecommuting

The recent in-depth review of Timbuktu in the recent TidBITS was much appreciated. Here is another angle on Timbuktu. Pacific Bell has been pushing ISDN for telecommuting. Aside from linking together networks, some use Timbuktu to screen-share, which I think is a fabulous way to work remotely with an art director (or client). We do desktop video and motion graphics, and the idea of interactively checking off a design (and being able to make modifications in real time) without the designer being at your physical location is very attractive. It's inefficient to render a trial animation, make a rough tape, overnight or messenger it to them, and get back comments a day or two later over the phone "this color should be richer, and the type larger" when you could have checked some details beforehand.
