It's good to discuss this kind of changes on the maillist not with one
single developer, to avoid confusing situations like this.

I am surprised that you fail to understand basic concepts like how
postprocessing works and that you can't even test it properly.

You need to insert postprocessing filter, like  pp, spp, fspp. The
quant info is used by these filters. Also you for best results you
need sample with less than perfect quality (aka with visible

Without way to export quantization, libmpeg2 is pretty much crippled.

This functionality should be pushed upstream, so it could be
implemented in cleaner standard way. Then it can be replaced.
