Hi all,

@Giovanni: being a somewhat heavy user of mkvtoolnix myself I'd like to
co-maintain mkvtoolnix with you. I rewrote most of the PKGBUILD, here are
the changes I'd iike to push [1], I chose to name the Qt-enabled mkvinfo
binary mkvinfo-gui to mirror how the main GUI is named. Also, as Moritz
Bunkus pointed out, it appears all current workarounds can be removed.
Please let me know what you think.

@Benjamin: Feel free to give the diff a spin before we push it, it's
working fine here, the only gripe I have with the new GUI is that the left
toolbar is completely black, but that may just be because my desktop is
powered by GNOME.
