Indeed gajim doesn't have RAW-UDP, but we don't have ICE-UDP either. In
fact we use farsight that handles all that. So to add RAW_UDP to Gajim,
we need a bit of refactoring in our jingle code, and then use farsight
that already implements RAW-UDP.

That could be usefull, indeed, but that's not 12 weeks of work for sure.
So a proposition with this + captcha has more chance to be accepted in
my opinion.
