I'm curious, are there any on-going efforts to develop a telepathy connection manager for Skype? I've seen fleeting references to something called telepathy-spirit, although it would seem that this is/was a closed sourced project run by Nokia (bad form!) and as such is only available for Maemo/ARM.

Frankly I'm getting rather fed up using Skype's own client and the telepathy-haze/libpurple workarounds are tedious and feature incomplete (no audio/video calls!). So the sooner an official telepathy connection manager for Skype appears the better (SIP simply isn't as widespread, and trying to convince a Windows/Skype user to switch to a SIP provider is like pulling teeth)
