I'd be more worried about having to design your own flow control
system on top. Ultimately I would imagine that using a separate protocol
(or simple socket) for the raw data, with a separate control channel
(for which D/BUS is more suited) is the best way to do media streams.
Re-inventing TCP is prolly not a good idea ;-) I'd look at MCOP or
whatever it's called - Stephan is a sensible chap.
