[mythtv] "New" Feature: RTSP streaming for myth backend

Similar to Thor's MFD it would be nice to have to ability for MythTV
to stream from the backend via RTSP. I'd like to implement this in
such a way that the stream could be adjusted (bitrate, etc) on the fly
before being sent out. I'll admit I know very little of how MythTV's
playback stream pieces together as it stands. There may be someone
better to take this one on but I consider myself a good C/C++
programmer and am willing to volunteer my time. If I were to go about
this I'd probably try the following order:

- Initiate video stream of file from drive (based on Thor's MFD work;
- Get transcoder to stream to the RTSP video streamer (based on mythtranscode)
- Fit it in to MythTV (??)

I know I said I was going to peek at MythWeb music but this is really
something that keeps coming up for me and would be a benefit to
mythweb, along with the rest of MythTV if muticast can be provided. 
Keeps MythTV ahead of the slingbox and TiVO too :)
