Hi Bruno;

Skype is discussed every so often; check here:  ... this URL has both a ticket with
a web-based way to do it, and a project at with code.

Recall that Skype Protocol is closed-source, so anything done is a case of
maybe working, and then failing after a random point-rev.

Also, take a look at the various attempts to get video into Pidgin -- if
you're thinking of the voice/video portions of Skype.
