This is the same approach we've taken with Ostel.co and OSTN - we
provide a service, but clients like Jitsi, CSipSimple, Linphone, etc
come from other free-software sources. It is counter-intuitive in this
age of a unified vendor for the app and service stack.

Some people say that makes our usability poor, but if you consider "not
being backdoored" as part of usability, then I think we do just fine.

Keep up the excellent work, Zooko.
