Group-Phone-Hiring interview tips?

I've got an hour-long phone interview with 4-5 people from an investment bank this afternoon, from which I believe they'll be making their hiring decision.  Now, I've done phone interviews, I've done gorup interviews, and I've done hiring interviews - just never all together.

Are there any tips that you guys can give for navigating through a group-phone-hiring interview, to do development work for an investment bank in particular?

Write down everybody's name at the beginning of the call ;-)

Are they really going to hire as a result of this phone interview? Unless you are in a different country from your prospective employer I'd be surprised if they didn't call you for a face-to-face if you get through this.

Just tell them no matter what the business is you are able to "dramatically streamline" the whole f'ing operation.

In fact, tell them in those exact words, and then come back and tell us what they replied.
