[vdr] Question about component descriptor association

I stumbled across this line in eit.c
    cd->getStreamContent(), cd->getComponentType(), 
and the corresponding code in menu.c:SetTrackDescriptions().

Searching the mailinglist revealed only Klaus' message from February

Actually, the component descriptor from EIT and the stream identifier 
descriptor from PMT are associated via the component_tag.

Is there a reason this is not used, or did it just slip attention?
(It definitely slipped my attention when I skimmed the mail at that time)

Anyway, the current solution is working pretty well, so this is low priority,  
but at least, if some stations are reversing the order but provide the 
required descriptors, we should not blame them.
