I've completely stopped using Skype across all platforms because of the lack of plans to modify their app for Playbook. I've also started buying my family 16GB Playbooks as gifts so we can use the native app and all ditch Skype together. I recommend that you all do the same. The quality is way better anyways.
Actually that is exactly what we (me, my wife, dad, mom and sister). That is an extra $800 to RIM and 0 to Skype.
