It seems like it's early days for that app. No updates for over a year
(are they working on it?), no STUN or anything to get out of a NAT
trap. No interop with other tools mentioned.

Peter clarified in a private email that current Gnome uses Telepathy
to interop with various other tools (gchat, msn), and apparently can
do voice + video. This exists today, and has a reasonably mature
codebase... that is in use in Sugar too.
