I know that there is no full-scale alternative client as the Skype protocol is closed, but perhaps there is an alternative UI for the official Skype client?

As you have mentioned, Skype's protocol was never published, so no alternative clients are available.

There's a IM Client I know called Miranda IM, which integrates to Skype but requires it to be running in the background.

If you're into gaming, you can try Overwolf, Xfire or Evolve, which all intergrate to Skype and other Social Media sites (ex. Facebook).
