I'm sure that Vlad is happy to see the ongoing discussion of technical 
questions raised by the OP. He just asked to keep political FUD off 
the list. And I'm completely agree with him, IMHO unfounded (and 
founded probably also:-) talks about bloody regime are not for this 
mailing list. YMMV.

As for banning Skype in Russia, AFAICT it's FUD also. Everything seems 
to be based on some discussions in The Russian Union of Industrialists 
and Entrepreneurs (just hysterics by mobile operators loosing market 
share?). It's somewhat troubling but I'm not sure it's worth much 
discussion until there are some concrete details.

What the OP proposes is also somewhat strange. Build the possibility 
to "call to ordina[r]y telephones" into Tor? Sure, just add some PSTN 
exit nodes...
