I haven't been following the work here as closely as I would have
liked so I might be missing something obvious. What I don't understand
is: what is an app supposed to do with an RTP event? I would expect it
to be able to either somehow convert it to a new render-able stream or
attach it to an existing one as some sort of a layer.  How would these
