I completely disagree. There is no point in having the HTTP server in
libavformat if it cannot be used to implement exactly that kind of
thing. Implementing ffserver with it is just the test bed that it
requires to become mature.

The HTTP server in libavformat was accepted three years ago, and you
worked hard for it. Do not let people tell you it was for nothing. They
had their chance to discuss this three years ago.

Well, then, let us add the functions that are needed in the public API.
It does not seem that difficult to design.
