That's great news.

So, if a simple Jingle proxy system was defined as an alternative to
ICE, would Google support it? For example, say I'm using a client
connected to acme.com and am chatting with a user at gmail.com. I
initiate a file transfer with the gtalk user, but my client only knows
about the (hypothetical) SOCKS-5 transport defined for Jingle and not
ICE. Would the Google client be modified to support this case assuming
the protocols get defined?
