Except 802.11 was never intended for this kind of use, and voice quality is 
GOING to suck, particularly when you roam.

The other lovely part is that with no 802.11 link encryption, or with WEP 
which is almost the same as none, your calls are trivially tap-able.  If you 
haven't already, take a look at vomit, written by a friend of mine:


You ARE securing your VOIP calls with something like IPSec, right?
