Hi Lars,
I'm using it... but not the .deb package! ;-)
Just download the static version, untar it and run... :-)
Wait... I found a problem with a library Skype needed: it was the i386
version of libXss, iirc.
To solve this little problem, simply download it from
packages.debian.org, decompress the package with dpkg (-x option) and
copy the libXss.* files in /usr/lib32 (pay attention not to copy it in
/usr/lib or /usr/lib64, since you'd overwrite the 64bit version!).
That's all... it works here!

Hope it helps.
