Are we changing focus to audio-only and going to rename the project to AudioLAN?

There was certainly life before Qt4 and/or VLC 0.9.x.
The Streaming panel was definitely there in previous releases and both UDP and
RTP were present. Moreover, all networking choices were using TS container since
day one.

Changing just the RTP item will certainly confuse users and eventually make them
believe RTP is unstable and always changing stuff they need to stay away from.
That's exactly the contrary to what we're trying to achive.

   With kind regards,
