  BitTorrent tends to be an evolving protocol, with lots of clients 
competing for mindshare; I'm not certain that limitation will remain. 
As for Skype, it seems like that is potentially a business decision on 
Microsoft's behalf.  With the money they may be sinking into the 
technology, I would contend they have something to lose by not making it 
work.
  As has been discussed at length on this list, this is NOT an unfixable 
issue.
