Can you please elaborate?

This patch solves 2 issues for me:

- check if a given title is a menu and for its duration (previously, you could only get a list of titles and their names)
- check for the duration of a chapter (previously, you could only get the name)

Both additions are useful for libvlc client apps, aka VLC’s ports to iOS and Android, when playing MKVs or DVD media.

Agreed, this is quite a large number of lines for very simple additions and I’ll happily discuss ways to generalize the structures with you next weekend.
