It's still the first version or an adaption of the first 
(proof-of-concept) version for recent vdr-xine.

So all of you say, that the networked-vdr-xine is running stable, with no 
(new) issues? Can't believe it :).

The idea of course is to integrate it into vdr-xine. Therefore the fifos 
would be removed (even for local use) and substituted by sockets. But 
neither me nor anyone else has had the time to do a clean integration into 
vdr-xine and xinelib. Reinhard says, that this part needs a cleanup 
anyway... So combining both steps is just logical.
