FYI, the sources for dvhtool are on their oss.sgi.com site in their cvsweb
tree (http://oss.sgi.com/mips/cvsweb/dvhtool/).  Doesn't look to hard to
at least gleen information from.  It would definitely be worth an email to
see if it is, in fact, open source, especially since it's in their open
source CVS repository...
