Support Chapters in m4b (audiobook) files

Hi,

Feature Request: Add chapter support for m4b (audiobook)

Reason: While skipping ahead X secs with the various keys is useful, having an option to either choose the chapter to play or a key set to navigate the chapters would make listening to long audiobooks easier.

Resources: Chapters in m4b files come in two flavors: a timed 3gp text stream channel (used by iTunes/iPod) and the Nero chapters (used by VLC and others). see http://gpac.sourceforge.net/doc_ttxt.php and http://gpac.sourceforge.net/doc_mp4box.php.

Creating iTunes compliant chapters is rather easy (http://froebe.net/blog/2009/12/24/how-t ... n-be-done/). See the mp4chaps utility from the mp4v2 project for format details.
