[Icecast] Support for rtsp:

Hi,

Can anyone advise whether there are any plans for icecast to support 
rtsp (real-time streaming protocol), as used by RealPlayer, Apple 
Quicktime etc.?

I assume the current version (2.2.0) doesn't - grepping the source 
produced nothing (and feeding requests prefixed by rtsp: generates 
icecast errors such as "EROR connection/_handle_connection HTTP request 
parsing failed" followed by a gibberish line in access.log:
127.0.0.1 - - [31/Jul/2005:12:11:54 +0100] "GET 
/SmpDsBhgRle6a46c41-01b3-11da-fd75-5b882c4e0439 HTTP/1.0" 404 109 "-" 
"RealPlayer G2" 0

Alternatively - though I really like icecast and want to keep with it - 
perhaps someone can suggest an open-source streamer that can do this?

Regards,
