Converting DVD-Video to MKV while preserving menus.

MKV files can have multiple video streams, multiple audio streams, subtitles and chapters.
This means I can take the titles of a DVD and make them into MKV files while preserving all the nice multiple angles (if any), multiple audio streams, subtitles and chapters.

But what if I want to preserve the menu structure too? Does MKV have any support for menus?
If yes, how can I do that?

How is that an improvement over MP4?

Open source formats suck. All of them.

Because the whole standalone support is headed towards MKV. Unfortunately.
