You keep talking about "silly menus" but I could not see any suggestion 
on how to deal with DVDs that have scores of "titles" and no title list 
printed on the box.
While it is perfectly fine that MPlayer developers have no intention of 
currently implementing them, it would show more brightness from you if 
you would stop considering silly the people that asks for dvd nav 
support, at least until you are able to suggest some valid alternative 
to it: in case you did not notice it, the fact that your DVDs have no 
complex title structure does not imply that dvd nav support is not 
useful, it only implies it is not useful to you...
