One issue that's been hacked a few times
but not really integrated is the interaction
of ffmpeg, where you can take a vob output
from ffmpeg into a fifo and hack vls not
to seek on the fifo, and thus you're streaming
from ffmpeg's input. THis might be replaced
with a URL for ffmpeg, with a UDP socket input
for vls (& UDP output for ffmpeg and/or ffserver),

I have a bit of a hacked http.cpp interface
for vls on http://techweb.rfa.org/staff/bill
that only failed because of page buffering
issues (it was cutting off after 512 bytes
on the POST with some browsers but not with
others) that can provide a different kind
of control interface than the telnet.cpp
