And that's the problem. As misc pointed out, we can't really trust proprietary 
stuff. No one has any control on the contents of those programms.
And thus we cannot guarantee, that it works. If we add such a package now, it 
might work now, but what happens, if we change any library or whatever?
And since it's not OpenSource, we can't fix it, if it's broken.

And to be honest: What is so complicated about installing skype, teamviewer or 
whatever proprietary crap from the vendor's homepage?
Oh sure, it might force you to read a bit about what you are doing :/
