It probably won't haved modes tuned for CBR (don't take me official :)
but you will be able to easily achieve it (with slightly suboptimal
quality) by croping packets (forget the term) from higher (to avoid waste
by padding) VBR bitrates.

To have accesptable sync in AVI, one can get away with constant average
bitrate (that's what is incorrectly usually called CBR). It will give
better quality (that's why even "CBR" codecs like mp3 actually do average
bitrate). That is supposed to implemented in the future, IIRC.
