 (In [7057]) This commit closes #158 by applying a slightly tweaked version
 of the
 mpeg2trans_v2.patch contained within.

 It reimplements the MPEG2trans class in mythtranscode. The output stream
 is DVD compatible if the resolution etc of the original meets the DVD

 In my testing some of the cuts were slightly off, but that might be due
 to not having cut on proper keyframe boundries...  Most importantly,
 there were no A/V sync issues after having performed a transcode with
 the -l parameter.

 To use the MPEG2 transcoding you will need to add an entry to the
 recordingprofiles table. Something like

 update recordingprofiles set videocodec = "MPEG-2" where name = "MPEG2";

 You can also use "--mpeg2" on the command line for mythtranscode.

 Also with this commit, mythtranscode will attempt to retreive a
 programinfo for a recording if the filename matches Myths format.

 The dvdwizard patch will NOT be applied as it relies heavily on Qt based
 controls. Aaron if you'd like to put together one using Myth controls
 and the theme engine I'll work with you to get it in.
