Not according to the articles I cited. It sounds like Sype is an order
of magnitude or maybe 2 better at bypassing firewalls than any normal
well behaved software, P2P or other.

If you skimmed through those references you'll have seen that:

   - In using Skype you give them permission to do it if they can.

   - They are extremely good at burrowing through firewalls AND not
showing that it is being done using any of the standard tools.

And may be tempted to conclude that

       - If  they can they do.

       - They often can.

When you read an article whose major gist is "ONE vendor CLAIMS that
they have found a method to stop Skype getting out/in when you use it
..." then one has to wonder.
