I think it wouldn't be so easy to integrate ICE in Adium/Smack. With  
ICE, you have to send packets in the same RTP stream you use for  
audio or video. But, in this case, QuickTime handles the RTP stream.  
So we need to hook this stream (I don't know how!) and insert or  
extract packets...

Ummm... I think it is a difficult problem...
