Q.eBay's Skype?

The question after eBay's Skype acquisition, coming so fast after Skype showed interest in the mobile industry, is:
How will eBay leverage Skype in it's foray into mobile based applications? Will we now see Skype-based auctions, or selling, becoming the de-facto mobile based eBay usage?
This obviously plays on the idea that by converting eBay into a VOIP based application, they are able to focus on the mobile's strength, voice, rather than it's weaknesses, small screen and limited usage keypad!
