In the near future.  Before 2008.

There's some segfaults reported by the OpenSER folks that I want to  
handle a little better.  Admittedly, they are not embedding it the  
way that it's now designed to be embedded, but I think we can at  
least return an error rather than SEGV.

   Overall Goal: Introduce embedded capabilities, while maintaining  
backwards compat as much
     as possible.

   o Internalize sequence number handling ( not use external file )
   o Expand cross-platform support
   o Improve cross-compiling


   Overall Goal: Improve embedded capabilities.  No requirement to  
maintain backwards compat.

   o Restructure code/logic in more sensible manner, since we're not  
constrained by backwards compat.
   o Include standard RFC attributes via header, so no external  
dictionary needed for those.
   o Add ability to pass VSA attributes via config option on  

Other suggestions as to what the community/users of the client lib  
are looking for are certainly welcome.  Code/patches/testing/feedback  
also very welcome.
