Skype on Wheezy

Just as Empathy got round to supporting MSN video chat, Microsoft ditches Messenger for Skype. The latest Skype version for Linux is supposed to be quite good, so I'm trying it out.

Support for the latest video libraries is not present, so my webcam won't work for me in Skype without this command:
LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/libv4l/ skype
An issue I've come across before with Flash.
