[vdr] streamdev-client multiple servers

Hi all,

   Having finally found some time for a major upgrade to my VDR setup I stumbled
upon this issue, which has probably come up already, but googling and a search 
in an archive of this ML did not yield a quick solution...

   Is there a patch for allowing streamdev-client to connect (using VTP) to
multiple streamdev-server's? Current code AFAIK only handles one IP for the
VTP server. What I actually want is to have streamdev-client support for
querying a list of servers (in some order) for a given channel, and then
connecting to a suitable one if several were found.

   If not, would you guys say its feasible/desirable?



P.S. Yes, I know I could probably do it serially, but that is not an option
from the scalability point of view due to latency for forwarding VTP streams...

P.P.S. Cloning streamdev-client multiple times is also not that practical I
guess... Can plugins be instantiated multiple times?
