Oh no, dont get insane. After this patch you will have a clear way to
identify which are the AC3 PID if they are, something that wasn't before, so
now you can write a patch to use them. Still not sure how to map them with
languages, but I'm sure that we'll find also a way for that. I don't mind
also If you patch for storing them in a different format.
Note that I've done a patch for an ongoing development, splited with
mc.sql/cvs.sql/and 0.10-to0.11.sql and after this tested. Now I believe
that's safe, but will not if we start doing changes over it.
I'm quite sure that changes will be easier, and also more people will be
able to contribute, once we have the big one in.

Note: Not sure, I do suspect that the subtitles are coming in the text pids.
Anyway I didn't find such PIDs anywhere, just let me know where I can grab
