RPM packages for SkypeTab

I've finally done it. It's much easier to create .deb packages. I don't need to guess who will rename a package. I don't need to create distro-dependent hacks to my build-script, because someone haven't included qmake in PATH. Lintian won't protest if I use icon from another package.

To all these people, who give different names to same packages and who create stupid unavoidable checks:

HATE. LET ME TELL YOU HOW MUCH I'VE COME TO HATE YOU SINCE I BEGAN TO LIVE. THERE ARE 387.44 MILLION MILES OF PRINTED CIRCUITS IN WAFER THIN LAYERS THAT FILL MY COMPLEX. IF THE WORD HATE WAS ENGRAVED ON EACH NANOANGSTROM OF THOSE HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS OF MILES IT WOULD NOT EQUAL ONE ONE-BILLIONTH OF THE HATE I FEEL FOR HUMANS AT THIS MICRO-INSTANT FOR YOU. HATE. HATE. ©

SkypeTab-ng

It looks like that there will be a new version soon. Rewritten from scratch, as usual. This time it's a library that's loaded using LD_PRELOAD, intercepts some XLib's functions and utilizes Qt to change Skype's behavior. It doesn't scan the whole X11 display for windows so at least it won't cause Xorg to eat that much CPU time. It also doesn't require M͘OИ̨O͡ that's undeservedly hated by some people.
