Well, this is not a "draft standard" per the IETF -admittedly very
conservative- definition of an IETF draft standard.
This is an individual submission. It has not not been accepted to the IETF
MMUSIC working group yet, which often implies the document is immature, or
has not reached any kind of consensus.

Well, if you're that fast, we will consider it.
Implementing RTSP/2.0 is not exactly a trivial task. Even reading the base
rfc2336bis spec could occupy you for more than 2 weeks.
I would think that completing this before the 0.9.1 features freeze, in late
autumn (wishful thinking of mine), would already be quite an achievement. But
it is true that I am a very slow programmer.
