I have an idea.  I can't imagine any filename that would start with 
"/////", can you?  What if mplayer took playlist lines that start with 
/////, and read them as options to be applied to the preceding file?  So 
you could have a playlist like

///// dvd-device=/mnt/reki/fightclub aid=129
Radiohead - Creep.mpeg

or something.  I might use that.  Can't say I've had a need for it yet, 
but I can see it being useful.
