No it is not possible. Everything they are using is proprietary, and

Indeed, the next release of GnomeMeeting will be able to support the SIP
protocol, there are many PC-To-Phone providers able to work with SIP.
Not only diamondcard.

I won't switch to Skype until their protocol is open. It would require

Moreover, I don't know what they are doing with users data, so I
consider it as dangerous.
