If we choose to walk down the script path, then I also think this is a
good solution.
This way people using VirtualDub or AVISynth won't need to learn a
whole new syntax ;)

So back to my previous mail about plugin options (that you can also set
inside script files). If we go the script way, then the idea I talked
about ('plugin.setOption(name,value)' or so) may be better than using
XML all the way ('plugin.setOptions(my_whole_settings_in_a_xml_format)'
or so).

As already discussed with ChrisHJW on IRC I agree that the matroska
'plugin' could be integrated in the main project, but in now way the
editor should be 'matroska-dependant'.
