I was thinking about that too. I still prefer caching the info rather than
re-downloading the player for every invocation though. (That's what my scripts
do.) That would mean creating something like a ~/.rtmpdump/ for storing the
cached info. Which is fine with me, if no one else objects.

e.g. ~/.rtmpdump/www.foobar.com.player.info containing the HTTP timestamp of
the SWF, and its size and hash. (Storing the HTTP timestamp allows us to use
HTTP Get If-Modified-Since and avoid the download if the file hasn't changed.)
