That's allright, there is no documentation other than the source, my fault
:) But yes, there should be basic support for TRACKS (CHAPTERS as I like
to call them) inside streams. I made these modification when I implemented
the CDDA plugin. My idea of this was to add a menu to the GUI where you
could choose the different chapters..erh track inside a given stream. I'm
open for other GUI suggestions (it is a GUI problem, technically we can
implement track support very easily since the plugin API supports it

Again a GUI problem. There is no 'space' left for the Author. Again I'm
open for suggestions. A srollable author/title label perhaps?
