here we run into the same problem amfphp and openAMF have, in that
their status in as far as MM is concerned is undetermined. I don't
think MM will ever comment on it one way or the other (especially post
Adobe, until takeover that is), but people will still require the as2
remoting classes from MM to use it, and that is def under license, so
not truly open source. this is however a mile off, so no concern as
Aral, has burak done any work on rtmp, as i think he is prob the
person in the best position to look at something like that.
