at the moment my plan is getting alive at the end of  every day and 
diving in my bed:-)
In any case there's no reason to remove anything. The two streams have 
complementary features and
they go along perfectly well.
I don't like the dvdnav mechanism, but I can hardly imagine a different 
one, on the other side the
code in stream_dvd is "codus horribilis" but it's fast and as long as it 
works... don't touch it unless
it's broken.

dvdnav:// is simply the only way to play broken dvds or I wouldn't have 
committed the code years ago.
