I'd probably just go and fix it as we go and integrate Realmedia
support... I mean, basically the only part where RTSP -> RDT comes
into play is in parse_packet, all other parts aren't really
interesting. RDT may lack many aspects of RTP, but in the end the
setup is the same. We can still use RTPDynamicProtocol and RTPPayload
and such works the same. The only thing really different is the packet
layout and apparent lack of RTCP. That's easy to take care of when we
get to those parts of the patches if we're not going to build a whole
machine around it, but simply use if..else.. statements.

Attached is a patch that introduces an enum ServerType and scans over
it during OPTIONS while we detect server type. I'll use that in other
patches in the future.
