GStreamer RTSP Server use case

Consider an IP camera. I'm looking for a way to provide two video streams
with different resolutions or codec settings using the RTSP server. The
video comes from the same source and therefore the streams are in the same
pipeline. How to map these two different streams to two different RTSP URIs
using rtsp-server?

Looking at the source, it looks like RTSP server was not designed for this.
It assumes that each URI maps to a standalone pipeline. Is this a true
limitation? (Wim Tymans, this question is directly addressed to you :-) The
source is quite complex and some of the classes allow subclassing and
customization. It's not clear to me at this point how I can work around this
problem. Any help is appreciated.
