Let the auction begin

I wonder if this time next month we'll be able to buy SkypeOut minutes on EBay, or maybe use Anything Points to purchase a SkypeIn number? Seriously, though, I am pondering what the angle is for EBay if the story is true. Is it merely to be an added facility for the community, either as an add-in for the users' "About Me" pages, or in the chat rooms? I doubt it. As I have speculated before, my suspicion is that there is a content superdistribution strategy involved here (funny that this press release also appeared from Skype today). Must digest this further.
