But I see a problem with skype's b0rken encryption (they seem to use the same
RC4 sequence twice, with a lot of known plain text bytes in the first
run, so hacking this is straight forward) and the possibility for others
to make their computer a supernode which might route my call if I am
behind a firewall.
