The problem is that applications like Yate can't migrate to Opal.
The basic library for OpenH323 and Opal is PWLib which makes things
The reason why Yate can't migrate to Opal is because the h323 protocol
of Opal is not stable and the rest of the protocols have their own
implementations in Yate.
Except Ekiga nobody uses Opal therefor software for gateways like
Asterisk or Yate don't really have support for it. It's fine to use it
for a client but not stable enough for a gateway.
