Empathy doesn't handle sip: URL

empathy (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: empathy

empathy offers SIP functionality, but cannot be invoked with a sip: URL, making it much less usable to launch from e.g. a Web browser.

This is similar to the need of reacting to irc:// URL schemes #496085 and thus also linked to the upstream bug of https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=541156
