Multiple audio tracks in mkv files

I have a number of mkv files with two audio tracks. During playback both tracks are enabled.

I did a quick hack of gimmieMovie in SapphireVideoPlayer to disable all audio tracks except the first and this fixed the problem. I'll upload the patch later if you think it's worth it, or if you'd like to suggest a better place for the fix that'd be great, I'm not sure if it's the right place to modify the quicktime track.

To improve this further I'd like to be able to choose which audio track to enable via a sub menu, but I'm not going to work on that if it's unlikely to be accepted. Let me know if you're open to additional menus. My basic idea would be a root menu on right click that contains the mark menu and a new playback menu for audio selection and subtitles (in the vain hope that Apple one day fix their subtitle problem - another reason I'm not about to start changing things)

Note MP4 and AVI play ok, mkv is the only format that has this problem.

Sorry, forgot to mention, this is on Leopard, I don't know if the same issue exists for AppleTV

Committed a different method in [810] which should work under a few more conditions.
