I think the option is clearly defined now.
I little thing that always annoyed me was that every recoding file had 
the .vdr extension, whatever the actual contents (it seemed like the 
file name was used as an extension). See:
     index.vdr
     info.vdr
     marks.vdr
     resume.vdr

Maybe you will find an opportunity to improve this at the same time...
