Yes, it doesn't spawn it for me, that's also the reason why I'm not
fully decided to support it, because it would have to be spawned by
Spectrum. If I remember correctly, skype let you set something like
--dbpath where it stores all informations. This could be basically
copied from Karaka gateway. The only problem is the legality. I really
don't want to break GPL, but I'm not expert in licenses.
