Well, we can debate whether the assortment of protocol support levels 
has that affect, but its not really important.

 From my pov the whole point would be that 'maintaining them' becomes 
else's problem'.

You need to maintain the core swig centrally and allow feedback from sip 
etc devs to
shape the raw API, but beyond maintaining enough code to ckeck that its 
working (and
that definitely does not need to use platform idioms - and is a side 
effect of testing the
core anyway so little extra effory) thats job done.

The total effort is still great - sure - but the steering and release 
management of the
core is much  more focussed.

I definitely agree that a passive state-machine implementation of the 
protocol core is the
ideal. In the case that its 'too hard' then some sort of abstraction 
similar to the OpenSSL
BIO might be adequate, at least up to a point.
