What happened to SmartCode Pro?

Okay, since DVD Studio Pro 4 now costs $1300 (only available as Final Cut Suite), I've been searching for affordable Mac apps for encoding Dolby surround. (don't want the suite. FCP Express is plenty!)

Could UA update their SmartCode Pro technology (sitting on the shelf collecting dust?) and come up with a DVD creation app? (Native or UAD-1, not TDM, of course) Team up with Roxio? Is this idea totally stupid?

Actually, the Minnetonka thing is just PCM. I guess I'd need AC3 for output via a DVD player's digital out...
