As I learned a lot about theora the last months, I hope to find some time to 
write some command line tools to split and join theora files (including 
vorbis ;-)). 

I also wrote a small patch for ffmpeg2theora for different framerates, 
however, J seams to be busy, so this is not applied to svn yet!? I have some 
more ideas in my pipeline e.g. keeping aspect ratio and add black borders, 
when having a resized film etc.  

Third, I started a project for a webcam recorder (under linux), which actually 
supports theora/vorbis encoding (only), but this is _very_ alpha, any help is 
appreciated ( http://developer.berlios.de/projects/qwr/ ).

Actually there is a lot of other stuff keeping me busy ... however, there is 
activity ;-)
