I have a student (Tilila El Moujahid) who is looking at IAX2 and/or
SIP client on the XO as part of her thesis project. The plan is to
look at both p2p and PBX mode and look at good combos of
protocol/codec for the XO 1 and 1.5

More to follow as we get moving. She'll be at the OLPC SF Summit, so
if any of you are there, be sure to remind me...maybe we'll get a
conversation/session going on that.
