There's a current functional solution: it is not giving Joe Average a Deb
package, but a new deb line for her /etc/apt/sources.list file. After that,
installing Skype is just a matter of the user typing apt-get install skype
(or double-clicking using her apt GUI of choice).
Only other requirement is for (in this case) Skype developers to know how to
deploy a deb repository.
