Yup. Jingle *signalling* may support different formats. But I
wouldn't necessarily lump gateways in the same sentence there.
Gateways will appear to a Jingle endpoint as a Jingle-supported
format. i.e.just like when I use an AIM transport to send a message
to an AIM user, I don't have to use the AIM program or protocol, and I
don't even have to know what AIM is. If I'm Jingle Audio and call
through a gateway to a SIP endpoint, does my client know how to talk
SIP? The answer to that would be no.
That being said, I can't wait for the first open source SIP<->Jingle
