VoIP for the 3rd world

The VoIP revolution could make businesses more effective in the Western world, but maybe the major revolution will be in the third world countries.
David Rowe has been setting up very low power ATA adapters usable for the 3rd world. The adapter can run on only 3 Watt! When you combine this with a Linksys WRT54GL for the backbone, you suddenly have infrastructure for the 3rd world!
The WRT54GL should be set-up as a full mesh network and then we only need P2P SIP! Does anybody know if the OLPC laptop supports a VoIP client? I believe that information is the key to help people out of poverty.
