oh maybe i didn't make myself clear enough.. oops. i already have two divx 
tracks and an ac3 track (and chapters) muxed in mkv container. i just want to 
be able to use chaptertrack(number) items in a new chapter file that i could 
then use instead of those chapters that i currently have inside that movie 

i mean weren't these two elements (chaptertrack and chaptertracknumber)
specifically designed to serve in a situation like this? i now simply need my 
new chapters that i want to create to be able to tell the splitter (Haali) 
which tracks should be made available within each chapter of the movie and 
which tracks the splitter should switch to upon entering a new chapter if the 
currently playing track is not allowed within this new chapter. the currently 
unavailable tracks could then be displayed shadowed in the splitters menu.

is this really so difficult to implement? isn't this all just about adding a 
few check/radio buttons in mkvmerge's chapter editor and teaching the splitter 
to consider these two additional chapter elements during playback?
