The one comment I have about this is I don't think it should be written 
as a "frontend" to mencoder or vcdimage.  The functionality should be 
brought "in-house."  <rant>The one thing I really hate about linux is 
half the programs out there are not really programs, their simple 
interfaces to a CLI program.  I feel its a piss poor way to do things.  
You want a gui on something, take the source and put a gui on it, don't 
write a wrapper. </rant>
