[theora-dev] Seperating Forground from Background

One thing I have noticed when encoding VCDs is that often videos with
complex backgrounds don't compress nearly as well as those with simple
ones. Part of the problem is that TV cameras seam to have the focus so
that the entire image is clear rather than focusing on the foreground (and
blurring the backgrounds). The result is that a good number of bits are
wasted trying to perfectly encode the background and as a result the
foreground image suffers.
I was wondering if there is any way to separate the foreground objects from
the background so that more bits can be spend on the foreground. Is this
sort of thing even remotely possible?
