BTW .. could we have a look at how the Real network guys are doing it 
with Helix ? Its also a x-platform multimedia framework, so they 
certainly had to solve the same problems as we are facing now.

We maybe cant use the code directly, even if they have changed the 
license to GPL now ( we need L-GPL ), but it could be some nice 
'inspiration' to look at it ?
