Interesting.  I'm not sure if this is intentional or not - I'll have to
play with it and see what my experience is.

I don't think you're going to get to exactly where you want to be with the
way Guacamole works today.  There are some JIRA issues out there that deal
with making shared sessions available on the home page to users, so that
functionality is probably not far off; however, switching between read-only
and read-write and passing control of a session around between multiple
users ("Passing the Ball" in WebEx) is not something that's possible in
Guacamole right now, and I don't think there is a JIRA issue in for that
one, yet.
