all i need is to to able to tell the ip that sylkserver advertises as
media address in its sdp.  the other party then sends media to that
address (= public ip of nat), which the nat then converts to local ip of
sylkserver.  the media_ip patch that i sent does what is needed.

i'm afraid that that would not work.  sip proxy running on the same host
as sylkserver cannot reach sylkserver for sip signalling using public ip
of the nat (provided by amazon aws), i.e., looping packets from inside
via nat public ip back to inside does not work.
