It's good to see how you trust our working force ;)
Look at what we did in a short time (even in "internet time").

I'm not going to build a menu system that can do everything under the 
sun. I think in 1 or 2 months it could be working.

For the MPEG, it is supposedly possible/working for months but strangely 
we have no code to prove it ;)

And for the control track, that's just as I said. Maybe I'll check with 
bond to see if BIFS need some extra data than just the ones in the 
Control Track.
