I guess a "latest greatest" driver source that combines "multiproto"
with Oliver's work would be great, since many users are going to need this
when VDR 1.7.0 comes out (which will require "multiproto").

So I'd appreciate if you could provide such a tree (and possibly keep
it up-to-date). In the long run I think there needs to be one place where
people can find *the* DVB driver again. The current plethora of repositories,
while certainly useful for the driver developers, is quite irritating
for plain users like myself ;-).
