I'm not sure i follow. What difference does it make reading the value 
for the "encoder" dict entry from MATROSKA_ID_MUXINGAPP instead of a 
Tag as we're currently doing?

I tried remuxing from a matroska file into nut with and without this 
patch and every available dict entry in the mkv file was copied even 
when using -flags +bitexact to mux the nut.
This patch doesn't really make any difference in that regard. It simply 
sets a standard dict entry using the proper string present in every 
matroska file.
