The Ekiga devs who I spoke to said that a.) it's not ready for SIP and
b.) even when it is there are a lot of things that it will not support
because they are going for a unified interface.

I asked of course if the two projects shared code, but apparently they
use two separate codebases, something about two different ways of doing
things. I got the impression that SIP is way out of the realistic reach
of Empathy (at least for now). Just see how many IM clients are around
and how many VoIP apps there are.
