BTW, you might want to look at the work on temporal URI and server-side 
seeking for Ogg going on at www.annodex.net. There's both a mod_annodex 
and illi's newer mod_OggChef that might provide a basis or at least some 
ideas for how to handle the server streaming. The on-the-fly theora 
peeling would be a useful feature for a lot of things.
