Yes, it would be lots and lots of work to implement menus.  Besides deciding on,
making, and coding a spec, you would need something to play it back.  Currently
the best choice would probably be the MP4 menus, but there is no directshow
filter for those so it excludes the largest user base which is directshow
users/players.  Two months would be much to short to deal with all of these

The problem with MPEG-2 support is that there are several MPEG-2 containers, and
all of them are a pain.  Also, all of the DirectShow MPEG-2 decoders are pretty
picky.  With Gabest's help this could probably be done pretty quickly, but there
currently isn't anyone with enough knowledge/time.  Mosu could also probably get
this done pretty quickly, but he doesn't have the time either.

The developer for that program needs to say how ready he is.
