Are there any good tools for looking at RTCP reports? Wireshark is a
bit cumbersome for the job, and the Asterisk support for storing RTCP
values for statistics seems a bit lacking still. Or maybe I just don't
know how to use it properly, that's certainly likely.

It would be nice if something like the patch from
http://bugs.digium.com/view.php?id=10590 would be accepted into 1.6.
