Sounds all very good :). I would however recommend that we simply make libjingle a requirement for WebRTC
instead of introducing a layer/module in the middle. It seems libjingle works on Unixy platforms as well as Windows.

Subject: [webkit-qt] New module "qtwebrtc": WebRTC support for QtWebkit and     native apps


I'd like to give a quick heads-up about our current work on Qt and QtWebkit.

One of our teams are actively working on WebRTC integration into Qt and QtWebkit.
We have resources available to finish it as soon as possible,
and we'd love to contribute that work back to the community.

Right now we already have/use patched QtWebkit which directly uses libjingle library for WebRTC support.
It may not work for everybody, thus we're working toward introducing a new Qt module "qtwebrtc",
which will abstract particular WebRTC implementations (like libjingle) for QtWebkit.

Also qtwebrtc module would be possible to use for creating Qt native RTC applications.

Your thoughts and opinions on this would be greatly appreciated.
