Some time ago I made linphone work on my XO.  It was fully functional
and reliable, but the GUI is really ugly also by the standards of a
traditional desktop.

The reason why linphone is interesting at all is that the engine is well
isolated from the UI so it's easy to replace it with a Sugar UI, perhaps
written in Python, without breaking everything in the core.  They have
already implemented GTK, console and test UIs.

Oh, and it also does video with H263, MPEG4, theora and H264 codecs!
