Really? IRC works, I used Empathy to connect to freenode for last two
weeks. Sure, there are rough edges, but it is very usable without big
effort. About calls - I have done them in the past (using Empathy from
PPA about half a year ago) and they worked (problems where if you use
different input than default (USB headset for example), PA switched
back to default input all the time.). I haven't tried now though, but
I really doubt that situation generally is worse than before :)

Sorry, I simply don't see it as "wildely broken". It has bugs as any
new software, but it moves in right direction.
