First of all I would suggest that you sign up for the Red5 mailing
list: http://osflash.org/mailman/listinfo/red5_osflash.org and send
this there. There are many more people that just read that list that
could help you, and it helps add more information to the archives so
that others in the future can benefit.

You are correct. Less than a year is an estimate of course, but I
think we can meet that self imposed deadline.

These components do rely on some server side stuff that we haven't
implemented. I believe that we will try to get them to work by default
in future versions though. There is certainly nothing to stop you from
creating this from scratch though, and we have quite a few examples
bundled with the distribution.

These have already been done, and you can look at our examples
included with the server. You should be able to modify those to fit
your situation. Not sure what you mean by "pager" though.

No problem at all. Unfortunately our documentation is still a bit
lacking, but we are working on it.
