That would be fantastic.  You're not subject to Mozilla's release  
schedule (nor should you be!) but I would love be able to point to  
these so people could export directly into theora from the mac tools.   
We'll be releasing at some point in the next few weeks depending on  
what the release candidate looks like.

I'd suggest getting a beta out there as soon as you can.  We'll  
certainly test it with our (tiny) video corpus.
