<robUx4> BTW, what you want can be achieved with chapters
<robUx4> too late...

Yes, having a movie in a movie is possible with Chapters. For example 
that Roger Rabbit thing (even though I don't think it can be considered 
as a movie in a movie).

The chapter would be like :

Chapter 123 (the movie)
--Chapter 1 (part #1 that contains the little movie)
--Chapter 10 (scene 1 of that little movie)
--Chapter 11 (scene 1 of that little movie)
--Chapter 12 (scene 1 of that little movie)
--Chapter 2 (part #2 of the movie)
--Chapter 3 (part #3 of the movie)

In the tags you can target Chapter 1 and say it's a CHAPTER of the MOVIE.
Then you can use the same target Chapter 1 and say it's a MOVIE. Then 
you can tag the scenes as CHAPTER if you want. And you actually have a 
CHAPTER inside a CHAPTER.

It's the king of little nice things chapters can be used for.

Now for a UI to display that... That's another pb. But at least a DB 
could handle these info without any pb.
