But then somebody might pull it! :)

That one definitely wasn't a pull request; it was very much a request
for comments. I haven't even got it working yet; that just stops the
immediate symptom. I'd happily accept "your PRPL shouldn't do it like
that, it should do <this>..." as an answer.

Hm, OK. I'll keep playing with it. 

Jakub, can you offer any insight? In short, my new PRPL can spew hex
bytes of audio data to the terminal but I can't see how to actually
turn that into a *call* in Pidgin. Short of setting up an RTP proxy on
localhost for Pidgin to talk to.

I've updated https://github.com/tieto/sipe/issues/157 with that

I had a quick look through it, and only spotted one ABI change (as
opposed to addition), which was the addition of a new argument to a
certain callback function. I'm fairly sure we can come up with a
backward-compatibility story for that. I'll take another look...
