My intent isn't just to get something up and running (which I've already done 
with libtheora), but to learn about the format on a deep level.  I was hoping 
that a small sample video had been thoroughly documented to help codec 
developers verify the correctness of our implementations at each stage of 
development, rather than have to guess where our bugs may be after the fact.

I supposed I could inspect libtheora's internal data structures while stepping 
through execution, but that's going to be very painful.
