[theora] Indexing Ogg files for faster seeking

Hey guys,

We've landed keyframe indexing in ffmpeg2theora over the weekend, so if 
you can, please pull ffmpeg2theora from svn and test it. To encode with 
indexing, specify the --seek-index command line parameter when running 
ffmpeg2theora. Please test it, break it, and then report bugs to me, so 
I can improve it!

This uses the "index in skeleton" approach, and writes a Skeleton3.1 
index track when indexing, as per 
otherwise it writes a Skeleton3.0. It only requires one write pass of 
the main encoded video data.

Firefox index-capable builds are located here:
