[Adium-devl] Jingle, Sip and IAX2 in one step

Well freeswitch is a library.  We are about to work on the video part  
also to extend it into the video arena.  Quicktime RTP doesn't do ICE  
which is a requirement for Jingle.  But you could mix and match  
quicktime for video and freeswitch for the audio/voip part.  You  
could also plug quicktime into freeswitch or freeswitch into  
quicktime.  Really nothing is out of the question.  We wrote the  
jingle library using iksemel and passes up all the non-jingle stuff  
up to the developer so they can make the choice.
