There isn't much of a selling point there. Skype supposedly encrypts all
voice communications, the difference being that Skype refuses to release
specifications for the crypto it uses. In my experience, that
distinction is far too subtle for non-technical users to care about -
they're perfectly satisfied with the "128-bit encryption" sticker that's
slapped across Skype.
