good to know, however I don't want to wait two years to see a working
solution integrated in FBSD and since I can't contribute with code my 
proposition was paid for it. Also it will favour the BSD community and
you could enjoy with multimedia appls. and you favourite OS.

We are reaching the end of the 2005 year and a new wave of new multimedia 
technologies are beating the server(/client) side.

It would be interesting if a FBSD developer second this proposal.
