Backwards compatibility with linux clients probably isn't the top priority of Skype now that they're being rolled into MS, but I suspect embedded deployments on handheld devices might still keep them from deprecating.

Actually Skype runs large clouds of linux clients (or a version of the Linux client) as part of gateways hosted with some mobile operators. They care a great deal about keeping linux compatibility.
