Okay, I'll try to have it running again tomorrow.  I'd like to remind
you all...it *is* just me sitting at my computer at work most of the
time.  No audio, either.  ;)

One thing I noticed with gstreamer is that I cannot control the buffer
behavior (for example, how we have --soft-target in example_encoder). 
So, what that means is that significant motion induces quite a lot of
blockiness.  That is to say, the rate is very strictly controlled.  I
don't know if there's a way around that.  Also, gstreamer's theorenc
element doesn't allow using the quality & bitrate parameters
simultaneously, so I cannot, for example, set a minimum quality.  Still,
I think it's great and quite suitable.
