Sorry, I kinda disappeared for a while (after all I got mythtranscode
written, and incorporated, and so now mythtv works exactly as i need it
to).  However, the reencoding should be done in Reencode file. 
Specifically, it is writen in such a way that you can get raw or encoded
video/audio (even if it is not fully implemented).  Since it is in raw
format, it should not be difficult to reprocess.  I had initially planned
on supporting two-pass encoding, though this has fallen by the wayside as
I dont really have a need for it, but resizing is something that could be
added quite easily (though once again, I'm not sure what the use would
be).  I was never too interested in the audio stuff, but I'd suggest that
anything that is needed get added to ReencodeFile, since that is where
all the work happens.

Just my two bits.
