Idea to include extras (1 Viewer)

Moving Pictures is really coming together lately, so I started thinking what could further improve this plugin (next to all the things already mentioned).
Basically, It could be helpful if the plugin would detect extras in a movie folder and add them to the database in a seperate field (connected to the movie)
For example:
Movie folder --> C:\21 Grams\21 Grams.BluRay.x264.mkv : Moving pictures detects movie, imports it to the database as 21 Grams
Movie folder --> C:\21 Grams\Extra.Deleted Scene_1.mkv : Moving pictures detects "extra" in the filename and that the file is located in the 21 Grams folder. Plugin then adds the file to a field in the database "Extras" as Deleted Scene_1 This would be a bit like recognizing "sample" which is already futured..

In MediaPortal: When clicking on a movie, the details view comes up & you get a list with all the extras available!
In this example, there would be one extra "Deleted Scene_1". if you click it, the video plays and returns to the details screen afterwards.

Just a thought ^^

    I had started a somewhat related request/issue on your topic previously, this issue can be found here:
    Issue 322 (and the included issues)

    Ignore the technical implementation part because that probably will change but the goal is the same ;P
