    That says that Skype may add third company TELEPHONY technology into the Skype package. It says that any new third party addition will be solely for the purpose of adding new functionality or improving the technical performance of Skype. I can understand being somewhat paranoid about that new or additional functionality part, but if it's any consolation, www.stopbadware.org doesn't have any complaints filed against Skype and Google doesn't mark it in its results as being a site that harbors malware.
