If we would create a new szap - I like dvbzap (following dvbscan) - what 
about using the channels.conf-format from VDR. I think it stores the 
service_id and other useful things. (When doing it, we also could think of 
parameter-constellation for ATSC channels for VDR).

We then could create a small lib which parses the file and maybe Klaus 
would use it too. Or we just add changes to dvbzap when they appear.

Would it be reasonable to add the ca_zap-functionality to such a dvbzap?
