[Xorp-hackers] PIM auto-RP sparse-dense-mode?

Dear Xorp hackers,

I find my self in a situation where I need to convince a Jupiter router
on the other end of a long-distance layer 2 connection running 802.1q
trunking that I have a router, but in fact all I have is a linux box.

XORP is helping me out in this matter, but one thing I lack is a PIM
sparse-dense-mode implementation to keep the router happy. Without PIM
sparse-dense-mode, I'll have to resort to having static joins configured
on the router, which I dread ;-).

Per chance, has anyone whipped up a PIM sparse-dense-mode implementation
for XORP? Specifically, I need to be able to support auto-RP and placing 
my xorp PIM protocol into discovery-only mode (I only have to handle 
sources and RPs upstream, so I really only need to listen to A cursory scan of the archives and bugzilla didn't turn up 
anything on this topic.

Any implementations or other hints or guidance would be appreciated!
