[vorbis] Bit peeling(?) used in MPEG-2/SVCD Nero plugin?

Not vorbis-related, just I think I found a similar technique being used...

The description of the MPEG-2/SVCD plugin on the nero site says that it
can encode exacty to the size of the CD (to maximize quality given a size
restriction).  It also says (in a separate point) that it uses two-pass
VBR compression.

>From that I guess they do something like encoding a bigger-than needed
file and then throwing things out.  But probably the peelable
represantation is only internal to the plugin and more complex than packet
truncation - hardly the SVCD format would support anything like the vorbis
bit peeling...
