The introduction to JEP-0166 describes two possible approaches to VoIP
and other multimedia streams in the Jabber/XMPP world:

1. Do the signalling over XMPP and gateway to SIP if needed
2. Require dual-stack clients and simply launch SIP from XMPP

#1 is the approach we've taken with the Jingle JEPs (which will be
updated soon, I promise).

#2 is the approach taken by Voipster and OpenZoep:

http://voipster.com/
http://zoep.com/
http://www.openzoep.org/

In the spirit of openness, the folks at OpenZoep have written some
documentation of their approach:

http://www.openzoep.org/docs/jabber/jep-0xxx.html

In essence they encapsulate entire SIP packets in an XML wrapper and
send them over XMPP.

I think it would be beneficial to discuss the pros and cons of each
approach (e.g., to determine if it makes sense to publish the OpenZoep
doc as a JEP).

What do people think?

Peter
