Since SCTP is a transport protocol, you need define what you intend to 
be transporting over SCTP. SIP? Media? IAX2?

If there is a platform-neutral method of interacting with an SCTP stack, 
and there are specifications/standards available to show how SCTP should 
be used for the application layer protocol you intend to transport with 
it, it should not be terribly difficult to add SCTP support for that
