To be an exact replacement which will work on the Skype network in the...
same way as the Skype client? Can't be done.
...Ideally, it should be sufficiently similar and simple, so that I could
persuade the other guy (who almost invariably is running $kype on a
Window$ box) to install Ekiga.
She's happy with what she has got. Why feel impelled to alter that?
I wish specifically to avoid the use of $kype channels. If possible,
I wish to converse directly and one-on-one with the other Ekiga user.
I am concerned with the "big brother" privacy, recording, and
non-exclusive license issues (an example being the license of
photo-sharing hosts to market photos which clients upload for sharing
with friends and family).
So, I am thinking that Ekiga is sufficiently similar to $kype that it
ought be possible for a non-technical Window$ user who managed to get
$kype installed and configured to likewise install and configure Ekiga
-- if he likewise values privacy in his communications with me.
This is no different than saying, "Instead of continuing to meet at
$tarbuck$, let's start meeting around the corner and down the street,
at the Java Hut, which is much more private."
Let him use $kype to talk to the rest of the world; but when he wishes
to talk with me, he can fire up Ekiga (or whatever), rather than
$kype. Of course, I realize that relatively few are willing to
accommodate me, unless the installation and setup is very simple.
