I've used the Skype plugin and I do /not/ recommend it at all. You still
have to have Skype open and logged in to use it. All the plugin does is
merge the buddy list with Pidgin (supposedly, it didn't work at all for
me the way it said it would) to let you know who is and isn't online.
All IMs, Voice and Video stuff is still handled by Skype.
