I _personally_ think that 1) would be ok (after all, I've not
been the one proposing to use RTPDynamicProtocol and function
pointers for this stuff ;-).
I suspect the code needs a little bit of refactoring, but then
the enum approach can be implemented without too much complexity.

I think the best way to go is to
- first fix rtsp.c to make it more generic and to remove the
    "RTSP ===> RTP" assumption
- after that, introduce RDT support with a second patch.

And I believe the most difficult part is doing the first step
in a clean way.
