I started to play with it at one point, but the project I would have

Patches accepted :-) 

I haven't gotten around to the RTCP code, because I haven't needed it,

I'm not - but I wouldn't be surprised if someone else out there was. I 
keep finding people just using bits of the shtoom codebase for all 
sorts of random things. I'm more than happy to accept patches for 
this sort of thing.
