Excuse my newby-ness, but why do we need to rename files during this
process? Here's how I thought the process works (probably hugely
over-simplified): the slave backend fetches the original file
(123.mpg) transcodes it to a new file locally (123-1.mpg) then sends
that to the master backend (as 123-1.mpg)?

I'd be happy to provide patches, but I'll need some guidance.
