Unfortunately not. Mark Kendall was looking at it but now that he's
left I think that the patches have been left dangling.

If you are interested, I maintain an archive of patches here:
The iso playback patch (for fixes/0.25) is here:
and this is the patch that added back DVD ripping:
This patch enables mytharchive to burn the ripped iso image:
This patch adds support for storage groups to mytharchive:
The last patch allows mytharchive to be run on a remote frontend and
build a DVD using material from any BE.
In the archive there are versions of the patches against fixes/0.24,
fixes/0.25 and master from today's git repo. I try to update the
patches weekly or better.
