Interesting stuff :)

I don't suppose it's possible to implement this as a plugin rather than
a patch to VDR's core? Is there not enough core exposed via the plugin
API?

I can't see the patch going into VDR core any time because it's focused
squarely at UK users only and Klaus would never have a use for it
(unlike the Premiere-specific multi-angle support) so I'm worried that a
lot of users will be missing out, especially if they use a packaged VDR.

Cheers,
Gavin.
