from what we've seen, dirac is something of a joke... althought it's
hard to tell because the code is so hellishly slow and difficult to
actually use in a real player.. as for the container, we've looked up
mxf and it's the most horribly misdesigned container we've ever seen,
which doesn't lend any credibility to the dirac people..
