  Description     : a curses Tox based instant messenging client

Toxic is a Tox-based instant messenging client which formerly resided in
the Tox core repository, and is now available as a standalone
Tox is a secure and distributed Skype replacement.
At its heart it’s a client dealing with our core library communicating
on our own protocol. All communications are encrypted using the peer
audited NaCl cypto library and this encryption can not be turned off.
Tox is powered by a distributed network which uses P2P connections for
chats between people, unlike other Skype replacements no federated
servers, centralized servers, or supernodes are used.

This is a way to replace Skype. It is decentralized, as opposed to
Jabber/XMPP, SIP, Jitsi etc.

If anyone wants to co-maintain they are very welcome. Is there a
communications team? I know of the OTR team, but that is only for OTR...
