[Standards-JIG] Datagram flow

My original version of the spec used RTP directly, before I realized that 
doing so was a lot more work than necessary.

Then I learned about RTSP.  It is simple enough that you can write your own 
small implementation if you wanted, but powerful enough to do everything 
needed.  The Helix project uses RTSP, and so I felt this was the best layer 
at which to interface with it.  We get less wheel reinvention, and at the 
same time a Helix-free JEP.

jep-rtsp is only one piece of the puzzle though.  The remaining JEPs I have 
planned are:
  jep-datagrams: udp flow
  jep-media: high level handshake for a stream (would use SI and jep-rtsp)
  jep-mconf: associate multiple jep-media streams together.  for two-way or 

Although these are still up for discussion.  We might want to allow two-way in 
the jep-media layer somehow.
