The original PG rated version would also be more family-friendly than the R rated director's cut. The original cut of this movie had a better balance of comedy and drama, and introduced a lot of people young and old to the music of Mozart, it's a shame the only way to watch it in anything close to state-of-the-art is in its overlong, more adult version.
I would suggest, if possible, including the Pioneer Special Edition laserdisc's PCM Dolby Surround track and commentary? I don't know if anybody has already ripped these, but the LD's PCM track is really nice, especially for the music. That LD also had a Dolby AC-3 track that I assume is the same as what appeared on the DVD.
