Ehhh, it is a standalone client, and it can run alongside the netrek.  
Support doesn't necessarily have to be built into the client, but we may 
want it to.  I'm not sure yet, still thinking it through.  I think it 
would be nicer if it were built in, but, that may be more work than its 
worth.  The important thing is that whatever is implemented is more 
robust than just someone buying a vent server and handing out the info 
to everyone.  This may be as simple as having the server detect which 
players are connected to which teams, and modifying the ACL to let them 
join the team voice.  I would like it that if the player selects 'voice 
enabled' in his client, this happens automatically for him, ie, he 
doesn't have to swap out, manually connect, etc etc.

Its something that still has to be looked at I guess.

Absolutely, just like in text.

I agree here too.

Yeah, probably, if you don't mind.  I'm not at the coding portion of 
this exercise yet, still trying to reason out exactly how this is going 
to function, which right now is reading up on mumble/murmur.
