Happened tonight on #pulseaudio:

00:41 < Q-FUNK> guys, it appears that Skype might be willing
                to become good audiozens and stop accessing 
                ALSA directly.  
00:41 < Q-FUNK> however, they would need help to understand
                what's required for stripping ALSA and OSS 
                support out of Skype and replacing it with
                native PulseAudio support.
00:41 < Q-FUNK> any volunteer I could put them in touch with?

<snip content="[no volunteers, some discussion about this
                list requiring subscription]" />

01:30 < Q-FUNK> well, anyhow, if anybody is willing to post
                the above to the list on my behalf, I can 
                put whoever is willing to explain to them
                how it's done in touch with my insider.
01:31 < Q-FUNK> there was initial resistance, followed by
                attempts to dodge the issue by pointing me
                to various workarounds, and only now,
                tonight, admittance that porting to PA might
                be the way to go.
01:32 < Q-FUNK> we need to follow-up now, while they're
                still convinced that it's worth doing.

Interested people should contact Martin-Éric Racine. Irc is
preferred, he's always on Freenode and IRCnet with nick
