hmm, now a true frameserver functionality would ROCK... allow for
multipass encoding, etc. But that would be a bit hard, I guess...
Streaming would be possible, but encoding on-the-fly would be a mess
unless you had a REALLY fast system. Encoding svcd on my dual athlon
1900+ takes 2-4 hours for a half-hour show (granted, I'm doing noise
reduction, which at least doubles the time - nontheless it's still
slow). It'd be better to transcode and then stream.
