As I've written(1) on the DVB list before, a quick hack could be 
possible based on the DVB API wrapper patch. A better implementation 
probably requires deeper changes within the channel structures. (and 
should IMHO be a change to a DVB header independent structure.)

Since I don't use either of the new APIs I'll leave these changes to 
others though.
