i agree that libjingle works great for C++. For other developers with 
C++ experience it should also be no problem to create libjingle bindings 
for other languages. But there are lot's of programmers which don't have 
enough c/c++ experience to create this bindings.

this depends again on your programming language, and if you rely on 
existing code for all the Jingle dependencies or implement everything on 
your own. I think other projects already died because it's not that easy 
to implement.

All this Jingle stuff is great, but it depends on so many other 
protocols with are not XMPP related. We leave the XMPP area here, and 
stumble into the P2P, voice and video world. libjingle is more than only 
a XMPP library, it's also a great P2P and voice library.
