Maybe I'm slightly insane but somehow I discovered skype to have its public api: https://developer.skype.com/Docs/ApiDoc

Could someone more familiar with the internals of Gaim give a quick look over it and warn if there is any major difficulties in getting at least the text messaging part to work through Skype protocol?

I do not know which one would be wiser: (a) to wait for gaim-vv; or (b) not to look for Skype at all. The real problem is that soon almost as many Estonians are skype users as there currently is MSN ones (and only a minority has Google talk enabled).
