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 [0] 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. :)

[0] 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.
