that's just my point.
maybe the backend can be seperated in serveral parts, like av-backend and 
data-backend, every part does just what it's supposed to do. av-b could do 
all the recording and streaming-stuff, and data-b could fire up the queries, 
transmit data as needed, etc. in a prior post Mark Musone mentioned to have a 
listening instance for changes of all kind, this could be done here, too
