Honestly I think calling by IP is much more common than having more
than one instance of Ekiga running on the same PC. However with the
advent of fast user switching we might expect the last issue to pop up
more often.

I'm not saying the possibility to dial by IP should be thrown out, I'm
using it myself very often. What I'm saying is that it shouldn't be a
"tragedy" for Ekiga if the port 5060 is already taken. Ekiga could
simply choose a different port and present the user with an
informational message that the default port is already in use by a
different application.
