Me! Most of the time it isn't needed, but occasionally secure file transfer 
support would be _very_ useful. I don't recall ever wishing I had video 
support though.

I suppose it depends on whether you see linphone as a pure VoIP client, or a 
more general SIP client with instant messaging and presence support. We 
already have support for presence and text instant messages. File transfer is 
part of that family of extensions, but isn't currently supported. Whatever 
features we have I would like a secured option to be available.

The only argument I can think of against including file transfer support is 
bloat, but you can argue the same about video support, especially on devices 
that can't do video. We get around that by making it a compile time option - 
if you don't need it you don't have to have it.
