linphone is a good lightweight client, but the bb version is rather out of 
date, and there's a dependency problem regarding libosip2 which needs to be a 
2.x version. And we don't get the GUI. Someone had a working linphone 2.x 
with GUI, and patches to switch the alsa state for ringing and call pickup.

Another option might be to use telepathy. This gives us a dbus API for IM and 
VoIP so we could add it directly to the voice and messaging GUIs. This cuts 
across the FSO call control interface somewhat though, as I understood that 
was intended to become a universal interface to voice calling methods.
