Why, Arpi, it could be a useful feature - to take sound track for the
movie from the another file (mp3 or something). With all the
keybindings and command line switches to adjust V/A delay that mplayer
supports, of course.

It would be even more nice, as mplayer has -dumpaudio,
-dumpvideo, -vo odivx, but cannot create movie with audio and video in
one file (ok, I know, it's in todo :).

And after that making mplayer to play mp3 w/o any video stream would be
trivial :-))
