Ok, if it is just against the spec, I think it is okay in the case of
the vdr. Those files where never meant to be exchanged with other
programs, they are files which are only for internal use. Of course
people try to use them with different programs, but I don't think one
can blame Klaus (the author of vdr) for this.
