There is one. It's called libmatroska but is a PITA to deal with...

Haali seems to have made a very simple design with his filter which 
should make it easier to maintain.

The pb of Gabest is that we don't have access to his CVS and so our 
_official_ splitter will never be the _official_ one from Gabest. That's 
a tricky situation. We could take the sources and put it in our SVN, but 
it depends on Gabest's baseclasses so we should import the whole 
guiverkli project to do so :(
