If MulticastSocket.joinGroup is successful, there is no subsequent method that
can be used to obtain the address of the group that has been joined. (Consider
TimeToLive, which is both gettable and settable, or the LocalAddress/LocalPort
properties of DatagramSocket.)
Furthermore, there is no documentation that
defines whether joinGroup is cummulative (can more than one group be joined),
exclusive (only one group can be joined at a time per MulticastSocket instance)
and there is no explanation as to what exceptions would be thrown if additional
joins were illegal.
