Entry points into libwebrtc code

The open source libwebrtc WebRTC implementation is the basis of the WebRTC functionality in Chrome, Edge, and Safari. It's also used in many non-browser client implementations, including Daily's native SDKs.

I thought that this post last week on the discuss-webrtc group gave a nice list of entry points into reading the code:
