It's more that in its current form it doesn't do anything. :)  If you had run 
this code on a current box with rcNG you would have found that out before 
committing so that a solution could be worked out.  As it is now, you could 
already achieve the desired functionality by simply muting the channel while 
the box was in multiuser and the channel would stay muted across reboots 
until you explicitly unmute it.
