I only have a 4% cpu utilisation decrease  when setting quality to 1 
(0.1) against setting quality to 9.
Is this normal ?
Also I don't see any CPU % decrease when lowering bitrates (on managed 
The only things that realy reduce the cpu usage is sample rate and 
number of channels.

I am a little used with lame which with a quality setting of 9 (aka 0.1 
in vorbis_enc) greatly reduce CPU usage.

P.S. How can Vorbis Stereo modes can be selectable by user ?
I readed in stereo.html (from docs) that this modes are user selectable 
but I didn't see any api reference.
