I want to change the title to:
"FSMSI 2004: european seminar on Free Software for Multimedia
Streaming over Internet"
avoiding 1st, 2nd, 3rd etc altogether.
Francois (Dechelle) and I wrote this stuff and I'm quite sure we both
meant what Steve understood, but since there *is* some ambiguity and I
want to avoid it as much as I can  I'll do the proposed changes if
Francois agrees and if the native english-speaking people around will
confirm me that there is less ambiguity this way. :)

 I had to fight with misunderstandings working in the AGNULA
project for a whole year, and I'd rather avoid wasting my and other
people's time with such non-productive activity.
