I do not know... I still had not enough time to think about this issue
(I had an half idea about using a single rdt_data structure for all the
streams, or about linking together the structures describing the various
streams, but I suspect this will not work).

Unfortunately, I have some strict deadlines to respect, and I have only
few spare time for ffmpeg. I do not think I'll be able to look at your
patches before next week, sorry... :(
If someone else can help reviewing these patches, he is welcome.
Otherwise, I hope to be able to return to these issues in a week.
In the meanwhile, I think you still have some approved patch to commit :)
