I'd say from GnuGk point of view it would be more
important to have long-lived PWLib bugs fixed.
H.45x and H.46x stuff is useful mostly for
development of custom software only.
It's nice to have it, but it's not mission critical.

Here is a specific question for those people using OpenH323 (and now
H323Plus) instead of OPAL.

What would have to changed in, or added to, OPAL in order for you to
move from OpenH323 (other than all of H.45x and H.46x stuff we are
already committed to migrating) ?

In other words, if you configure Opal with only H.323 support (which you
can do now by running "./configure --disable-sip --disable-iax", what
makes it so different from OpenH323 that it is worth splitting our joint
efforts and maintaining two codebases?

If you can answer this question, I promise that the Opal project will do
it's very best to fulfill the requirements so we can all work on one
codebase rather than two.
