Unfortunately, you couched it in terms of Gnomemeeting, and everyone's noted
that your point of view was outside the goals of that project in particular.
There is nothing stopping us from connecting up the dots between IM clients
and Gnomemeeting to provide a standards-based 'click and go' video/voice
chat connection.

Saying that we should 'absolutely' support proprietary protocols is not
wildly compatible with what GNOME is trying to achieve. If we can
interoperate with proprietary protocols, that's fine, but if we can use and
support standards, that's far better. You can argue this on the "what users
want" angle, but GNOME is attacking some of these things with a long term
view to freedom, not going for instant user gratification.

Dude. Gnomemeeting, or another h323 client, or a standard PSTN phone, or a
'hardware' IP phone. Because we use standards, these are all possible. It's
not weird stuff.
