Following up on some ideas from the start of this year's summer of
code planning:

It could be useful to make an encoding library that does video+audio,
similarly to what liboggplay does for decoding.

liboggplay uses libtheora directly for video, and libfishsound for
audio (flac, speex, vorbis); a similar encoding library could do

There have also been suggestions to make a "libfishsight" to handle
both theora and dirac, and then that could be used in encoder and
decoder libraries.

Etheora is fitting somewhere in between these, as an easy interface to
theora encoding and decoding.

Of course there's also all the frameworks (GStreamer, DirectShow, QT),
and plugin systems like OpenMAX.

In the end it's really the applications people are intending to
develop that should dictate where we put our effort ...
