Indeed, I fixed all the cropping/offset things and I do not get the
exact results, even if I encode it to quality=63. I don't see any
difference by my eye though, so it's good enough, but if I make the
difference of the arrays, the actual numbers (in the YCbCr planes)
differ roughly from -6 .. 6, mostly by +-1 or 0.

Thanks for the tip --- yes, oggz is indeed much better.
