[mythtv-users] Importing DVDs to Myth

I know about the DVD rip module and it's nice for what it does :)  
Obviously what I'm describing below isn't for everyone. I'm after  
more of a DVD archive or DVD Jukebox like setup and while ripping  
DVDs is nice it doesn't keep all the functionality that I desire.

I'm looking to see if anyone has put together a solution that imports  
(not rips) full DVDs into MythVideo. By import I mean the entire DVD  
to include all sound tracks, sub titles, menus, and video. I think  
I've seen some scripts that do this go by on the list but don't see  
them in the archives.

My vision of a functional DVD Import would be:

1) Copies the entire contents of the DVD (video, menus, all sound  
tracks, extras, and all subtitles) to the HDD
2) Uses the imdb.pl or other means to identify the disc, get the  
cover art, and insert it into the MythVideo database
3) Imported discs are immediately playable by browsing with MythVideo

The import option might be found by navigating from MythTV Main  
Screen -> DVD -> DVD Import.
