Apple iPhone Http Live Streaming in Flash (Free OSMF library released)

Hello everyone, recently I've read (http://www.flashcomguru.com/index.cfm...) that Matthew Kaufman has developed an AS3 library which adds support for Apple HTTP Live Streaming (HLS) to OSMF (http://www.osmf.org/ it's an open source framework to develop flash based media-player) and released it under the MPL open-source license.

HLS (wich is a proposed RFC open standard) is the required protocol to deliver VOD or live stream to Apple devices and it's also supported on Android; having it supported in a flash based media-player can make you reach both desktop and mobile users using just HLS, without the need to offer different distribution method.
Benefits:
Less complexity for content distributor and lower distribution costs!

What about integrating HLS in Kaltura? Note that it's only required to support HLS as a "video source" (in the video-player and maybe the video-editor) because tools to generate valid "HLS stream" already exists and sholdn't be reinvented!
