Dear Jorge, thanks for the feedback, that describes the process. I remember
that I once talked with the skype plugin developer, must have been years
ago. He told me, that it was a nightmare to add this thing, because no one
wanted it :-P
Will you be volunteering to develop this protocol integration? Who is cpw?
Should we  join a talk?
