Re: GNOME "Telephony Application Programming Services" Proposed

What would be the main difference between that system, and a system
using the existing GnomeMeeting and phones managed by GnomeMeeting

interact with PC-To-Phone gateways and to interact with normal phone

Is your goal very different?
