The best way to do this would be open a new RTSP connection, but use RTSP's 
'seeking' mechanism (i.e., within the "PLAY" command) to seek to the point 
at which the previous download ended, and then replay the stream starting 
from that point.

(But no, I have no plans to add this 'feature' to "openRTSP".)
