Yep.

I had a bug report that it was crashing though - I haven't looked into it
yet. Might be only with mis-configured setups.

Just specify (instead of <quality>3</quality>), any of:
  <nominal-bitrate>value in bits per seconds</nominal-bitrate>
  <maximum-bitrate>val</maximum-bitrate>
  <minimum-bitrate>val</minimum-bitrate>
along with
  <managed>1</managed>
