Yes, we learned that it's worth revisiting lavc mpeg4 encoder and
improving it. :))

Seriously. Yes I was somewhat inflammatory, but doom9 was treating us
in a way that indicated either a huge degree of incompetence or
blatent disconcern for fairness in testing. I apologize for 'ruining
things' for anyone else if they feel like I did so, but at the same
time I think making a public scene over doom9's unfair treatment of
lavc and general lack of knowledge about his subject matter (codecs)
does more good than having lavc stay in the competition and get bad
