I didn't close it as a non-bug, I closed it as Wont-Fix, which means I
acknowledge that it is a missing feature, but that we wont put in the
large effort needed to implement it. Copying MPG's from a VCD isn't a
very common operation. Most people either play the VCD image directly
from the hard drive or directly from the CD. Those are the common use
cases and those use cases work.

IMO, a feature like this would be better implemented in the desktop,
e.g. in nautilus. It does similar things for tar/zip/iso's. So even if I
think it should be implemented, it's not going to happen in the kernel.

** Changed in: linux-source-2.6.17 (Debian)
       Status: Confirmed => Invalid
