[osflash] Migrate FCS to Red5

we are currently using Macromedia's FCS 1.5 in a production environment.
As this version is outdated and licence caused bandwidth limitations may
become a problem in the future, I've been looking for a more flexible
and less expensive solution and found Red5.
Looking at the website documents, Red5 should still be considered beta,
but will have production stability within less than a year (correct me
if I'm wrong).
I also understand that it's not possible to simply point a Flash client
application (conferencing tool using streaming audio/video, chat and
presentation components) to a Red5 server instead of FCS and expect it
to work. Instead we would have to write handlers on our own that come
standard with FCS. Is that correct?
Is there any chance that such a higher level of compatibility will be
reached within a reasonable time span? Is there possibly already a
project on the way trying to achieve that?
How much time do you think would it take to develop server side
components for streaming audio/video, pager, shared pointer (smaller
changes in the client apps should not be a problem)?
I hope this question has not been asked too often, but I couldn't find
detailed answers on the Red5 website.
Feel free to give me a RTFM if you have any URL to point me to. But
please consider I'm just a dump system administrator and PHP developer,
not much into Java ;-)
Thanks in advance for your answers
