I hadn't thought about that.  I guess an API should be able to handle
multiple input/outputs to a single source.  I realize DirectShow can do
this, but I hadn't thought about the need to include have that in a future
API.  Its pretty important.

I think Christian's intention is future proof.  That's part of the concept
of Matroska, to be future proof for the next decade.  The DirectShow concept
is excellent for playback, but editing is not so good.  I think that we need
something designed for editing, that is future proof.
