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>
