Hi Shelly !!

Great to hear you could help us here, its an exciting phase we are in, 
there are improvements done almost every day, and i never would have 
believed we get working muxing tools for Linux almost the same time as 
we do for Windows. Mosu is a wizzard, and he has proven this by making 
the lib compile even on older GCC versions in world record time, and 
creating a basic muxer tool based on it pretty fast !

Mosu, could you please take the time now to tell the C porting team

- what the best solution would be
   * complete C port
   * C wrapper
   * basic C API

and what parts of the current libmatroska you needed first to get a 
mplayer plugin on the way ?

Shelly, please contact Animesh directly, as he will be the coordinator 
and project leader for the porting job ( he was first :P ! ). Hopefully 
after mosu tells us what to do you both can start cooperating, based on 
Ainmesh' work.

BTW, about a timeline for the porting : everything being within 8 weeks 
from now would be fine for me ! Other opinions welcome ...
