It depends on where the development is going. IMHO ca_zap should
stay a small tool similar to szap, so if it works now with libsi,
why would you want to change that?
OTOH if you (or someone else) wants to write a larger dvb library,
then why reimplement all of SI parsing if there are exisiting libs for it?
(I don't know if mpsys is good, haven't looked at it in detail.)
