Clearly, the assumption is that you already keep the PCs in your
office in locked safes from which emerge only monitor, 
keyboard/mouse, and power cables, and that you'd notice someone
simplying hand-coding a Skype client. Duh.

(That said... keeping people from using Skype on a corporate network
is an HR problem, not a network management/security problem,
methinks, just like any P2P software.)
