At this time, I'm not going to do so for a number of reasons (some of
which are pretty bogus I freely admit):

1) I've stopped making (s)vcds. The video quality off the .nuv and divx
files is so much better.
2) I don't know of a way to tell mencoder to create (s)vcd compliant
3) I don't know how to test the resulting files to make sure they ARE
compliant. Playback would be very easy to guarantee (mplayer can play
anything that mencoder can produce, after all), but I don't know how to
TEST them.
4) I'd need to set up the "burn to cdr" feature which has been
requested, and that is just not feasible for me to do at this time.
5) The complexity of changing the code to handle producing the two
separate formats (divx and mpeg) is more than I can deal with in the
immediate future.

Put all of those items together, and I'm not looking to produce (s)vcds
anytime in the short term future, at the very least.
