Yes, please do it. Why not committing your beta/alpha code to dvb-apps

My attempt and the mail was just a suggestion for an "easy-to-extend" 
libsi. You already wrote a libsi which does it in the same way - good. So 
it'll probably your libsi-implementation which will be the base for adding 
further tables and which then could be used by dvbscan, too. How to 
generate the struct doesn't matter... at this time.
