DISCLAIMER - I am NOT, in any 'real' way, affiliated directly
with this project, I'm just a rabid fan of it.

Looking through the theora.org site and descriptions of the project, 
I doubt it.  However, any improvements made ARE freely available, 
so someone else is welcome to back-port changes to the older avi
and quicktime frameworks if they want.

Given that they've already got working vp3-in-ogg, I wouldn't think
they've got any reason to divert efforts from the Theora project
for avi- or quicktime-specific development.

>From the looks of the alpha release, I suspect the only substantial
changes to the codec itself will be specifically related to fitting
it in the .ogg container rather than changes that affect the video quality,
which looks pretty good already in my limited experience...
