This plugin is required by the remoteosd plugin. That's all you need to know
about it unless you are a plugin developer.

For developers: This plugin offers svdrp connections as service to other
plugins. So if you want to develop a plugin which needs to talk to a remote
SVDRP server, you might want to take a look at.

The plugin offers two services: One to obtain a connection and the other to
send commands. The reply is returned as a list of lines. Multiple plugins can
share the same SVDRP connection which is nice as long as SVDRP cannot handle
multiple connections at a time.

Check the README or the remoteosd plugin for some sample code. The plugin is
available at http://vdr.schmirler.de.

Known issues:
- Locking has not been implemented yet. Only the main loop should call the
service yet unless you know what you are doing
- Still have to take a closer look at error handling. If a connection is not
closed properly it sometimes blocks the SVDRP port on the server until it
times out.
