patch to not use quirks for video_rtp/rtcp

If the GMail user is invisible, we don't get its presence, we can't know it's using gmail. The quirks fail.

This prevents video calls from working as it doesnt know to use "video_rtp" as the "name" attribute instead of rtp.

I think we should just forget about the quirks and try to be clever and do something that always works.

For example, for calls, if it's the Google transport, we can just always accept video_rtp,video_rtcp as synomyms of rtp/rtcp. And for the outgoing candidates, we can just send both (ie, duplicate every video candidate). The attached patch does exactly that and makes incoming video calls from GMail users work.

Hmm, if this still works with old Gabble, then ship it (presumably to 0.14 and master and maybe 0.12 if you're feeling keen)?
