The proposal might make the task easier, and as I understand
it, is entierely optional so VDR wouldn't have to use the
new mechanism.

The interesting questions:
- would the subtle API change wrt pes_type and DMX_OUT_TAP
  break something in VDR or other apps?
  (I guess VDR doesn't use DMX_OUT_TAP at all)
- is there anyone besides Felix who would like to have this
  new API extension?
- does anyone see any problems with it?
