	Few things,
. Do we have any test (dummy) Matroska files (against which one may test the
reading of EBML elements/Matroska headers)
. Or do we have any utility which would write Matroska files with known
. Or any test code which loads the existing libmatroska and uses it in
reading (or writing) Matroska files?

A dummy Matroska file, or any tool/code which can create one such file would
really be helpful..
