Are there PGPfone/SpeakFreely/Nautilus -like programs for
the popular free OS OS'es?  Or are the audio i/f too system-dependent?

Including a SecLinuxPhone with standard distros would be a good
way to bootstrap the network-effect.  The growing number of
high-bandwidth connections would give more than enough bits
to do this.  Also, *nix users (often hobbyists) might often
know enough other *nix users so that the talktools might actually
be used.  (They can be as easy to use as an insecure IP phone.)
