Well note that Theora isn't strait-up VP3.  There are changes.

VP3 needs to be documented as well, of course, but one of the big things 
holding back the beta release is documenting the format.  I'm sure 
everyone would love it if you wanted to complete this spec into a Theora 
spec yourself :-)

I'm also working on completing Dan's python decoder, which is another 
form of documentation.  I think having both is important, and the python 
implementation as an example is a great idea IMHO.
