So this is not valid anymore ? Please Moritz, inform me if you are not
interested in the job anymore , so i can search for somebody else making
Linux support for matroska.

We are making a C API only for the mplayer/mencoder guys, as it seems the
complete rest of the world prefers C++, for whatever reason. As we are in
the middle of writing up things please contact us if you had any wishes in
this respect.

You might want to disagree here, but if you expect your own Linux users to
use this format at all you should make a few suggestions about support on
Windows first. I am ready to get flamed, now, no problem, just keep it
coming. It wont change the facts. Not at all.
