Without revealing too much about the architecture, I can tell you that
it would need to be a significant fraction of the supernodes (due to how
node-supernode mapping works in these types of P2P systems), the relay
nodes (not mentioned) *and* the login servers. Not all of which are
deployed and controlled by Skype, of course, as recent press about the
most recent outage has reiterated for those who didn't know.
