Hi Andrea, Simon,
thank you for your responses.
Please don't get me wrong, I'd rather avoid adding new layers,
but in this case, we started to consider a new module because (libjingle is
basically a big collection of libraries)
we didn't want to pollute Qtwebkit project with lots of dependencies needed
to bring WebRTC support through libjingle.
Partial list of libjingle libraries and their dependencies needed for
WebRTC is below
