There is no a Telepathy backend (connection manager) for H.323 at the
moment, so currently it's not supported on the internet tablets. The
telepathy-glib library gives you the gobject base classes and
ginterfaces to implement in order to implement a Telepathy connection
manager. So, it should be possible to take a library like Opal or code
from Ekiga and make a Telepathy CM without too much difficulty.

I believe Senko took a look at it quite some time ago using Opal to
write telepathy-gem, but I don't think it's very complete:

I'm sure he (and we) would be very happy to help someone who wanted to
hack on this (come chat to us in #telepathy on irc.freenode.net). Hope
this helps.
