I haven't looked at it for a while but I think there is a group policy
template that you can download from skype that will allow you to force
certain settings including the super node functionality.
If they have removed that ability from the GPO template as well then I
would expect the campus', that do allow skype, to drop it pretty fast.

Subject: [SECURITY] Version of Skype - "supernode"?
We allow Skype use on campus as long as they configure it so that it is
in super node status. The Help Desk is informing me the new versions of
Skype do not have the ability to configure the application so won't
in super node mode. Does anyone have any suggestions, instructions, on
to reconfigure these newer versions?
