I'm just testing this change:

  sudo mv /usr/bin/skype-binary /usr/share/skype/skype
  sudo sed -r -i "s,bin/skype-binary,share/skype/skype," /usr/bin/skype

It seems to work fine, and unlike before the "Activate" menu item is
visible in Unity.

Arrrg ... How did I not notice this before? (Have been using 'the rename
binary' variant of the workaround daily for quite a while.)

@Bradley: Would the above fix the sni-qt issue as well?

@Steve: You mentioned on IRC that you have a solution in mind. Please
note that anything that would give the shell script another name but
skype would have other disadvantages.
