I would like to add new parameter to standard module as alias to
dst-parameter for following reason.

- people seem to get confused with dst. Like
  std{access=http,dst=} is ok, but rtp{mux=ts,dst=}
  means something totally different, and is most of the time totally
So something like listen (anyone for better name?), so you could change
documentation to say 'std{access=http,listen=}' and
keep 'std{access=udp,dst=}' so people wouldn't be so
confused about sout-configure. 

Basicly you could just check if listen is defined before dst and use is
if dst ain't defined.

My opinion is that it would clarify documentation and help some users to
understand vlc stream-out config better. Any opinions about including
