Hands across the water and all that shite

this is an amazing resource which I use to chat to friends and family around the world. I was wondering if any others have tried using Skype for an 'international' jam session or for lessons or for attending gypsy jazz festivals or the like?
I know of several guitar teachers who teach this way, the medium suits an ordered dialogue - but when you need live, real-time, unbroken feeds (ie for jams, festivals), one word: latency. You don't always notice it but there's an appreciable lag between you sending and other side receiving - when you're playing together even 0.1 sec is enough to throw the rhythm out.
