IMVU is an IM add-on that provides an immersive 3D environment for 
chat. Several of our users have suggested adding voice-chat 
capabilities, which I think is a cool idea. So I've been looking around 
for something that'd be interesting to embed. I thought it might be an 
opportunity to bring Shtoom to a pretty big audience.

We often hire contributors  who work on open source projects as 
contractors to help us. Naturally, we ask that any improvements they 
make to the project be contributed back under a free software license. 
If you're interested, please let me know.
