I think standarizing (=freezing and not changing the spec) is not the correct
thing ATM, especially considering some TODO items and marcos possibls future
GSOC work.

Adding snow streaming support to a functioning RTP server and client code
should be easy and IMHO not enough for gsoc. But maybe our streaming code,
iam thinking of ffserver here, is not that functional, fixing that might or
might not be easy. So some GSOC project about getting
ffmpeg/ffserver/ffplay streaming (with emphasis on snow but not just snow)
working seems to be a better project.
The primary goal could be getting ffserver->ffplay with snow working
and if (and only if) time is left work on other codecs as well.

Anyway i think the 2 lucas will want to comment on this.
I certainly volunteer as mentor for snow specific stuff but not for rtp*
though maybe luca #1 or #2 will do that?

there is nothing more to fear from them, then he is always stirring up
some war or other, in order that the people may require a leader. -- Plato
