This is a closed format. So someone needs to crack/ reverse engineer 
it. WMV2 and 1 were done by ppl from ffmpeg (which we use to decode 
this), so it this will ever happen probably someone will add it to 
ffmpeg and if so, then we will of course support this as well.

A timetable on this is asking for a timetable on getting a permanent 
base on the moon. ;)
