Slated to be merged in short time, you'll get it in the next mplayer snapshot (that's more or less due few weeks)

Some useful information while I'm at it:

- Do not attach anything in binary form on bugzilla
- patches uncompressed are handled quite nicely by bugzie

- Gentoo usually tries to work closely with upstream

- If is something on the developer ml/bts 
  (and is mplayer or ffmpeg or xine in particular)
-- We know about it already
-- Probably it will be provided quite soon in the next snapshot

- If isn't and isn't gentoo specific
-- We'll ask to post it on the upstream ml/bts
-- We'll try to push it upstream asap if is something important/useful

That said, thank you for you input, I hope to provide an ebuild for advanced subtitles, dvdnav and enca within the limit of tolerable (weeks, not months).
