Great podcast on Plex, NAS, HP Stream Mini Desktop and networking in general.

still bugs me that Plex refuses to deal with ripped DVD file structures... Keeps it from being the perfect media provider.

That would be very hard for them to do because there are to many files to deal with for playback, With formats such as Blu-Ray, MKV, AVI, MP4 there is only one file to deal with. Just RIP those DVD's to MKV using a program called MakeMKV  and its free as of now http://www.makemkv.com/

All true (MKV), but then you can't get to the bonus material on the DVD, right? That's my understanding anyway.

We sometimes by the extended edition or multi-DVD set specifically to get the bonus material.

Like the behind-the-scenes and how-it-was-made stuff.

Your understanding is not correct, You can include the entire DVD if you want to. Its your choice how much to include in the MKV :) For multible DVD disks for the same movie you would have to setup the folder structure corect but Plex can handle playing it all back. Have a look at the Plex recommended setup https://support.plex.tv/hc/en-us/categories/200028098-Media-Preparation

"understanding is not correct".. so there is still hope! 

Do you know if bonus material is indeed accessible from within Plex?

There is no hope that Plex will support DVD Folder Structure, You need to rip your DVD to container such as MKV then what ever you want to include in that container will be played by Plex including bonus material if you include it when ripping the DVD, If its a multi disk movie then you need to follow this link to media preparation to get everything right https://support.plex.tv/hc/en-us/categories/200028098-Media-Preparation
