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.
