Well, a couple of minutes work, and I have a crude hack that writes out
raw audio and video to two sepearate files from withing mythtranscode.  I
was then able to build a divx from those raw files using mencoder, so I
assume this can be done with named pipes too.  It should also allow
working with mpeg4 and mp3 files such that mencoder doesn't need to
reencode the files (I haven't tried any of that, i'm just guessing).  the
down side will be that there is no longer any audio/video sync info, and
with dropped frames/commercial cuts, it is likely that there will be
audio drift.

Not sure what to do about that.  Perhaps files can be synced in
mythtranscode, but I'm not really sure how.
