Mmh. And come to think of it, perchance push-to-talk could be slapped on
Jabber as well (as all it really is is exchange of small, heavily
[speex?]-compressed audio files).

(Aside; it will be nice if there will be MMS support at some point,
perhaps from indie sources, but I don't think it's that essential
either, especially at this point. Better to think up improved
alternatives with the IP connectivity, as Sean indicated.)
