[Vorbis] encoding vorbis in windows using on multi-core cpu

I have just realised that the otherwise-excellent lancer vorbis encoders 
do not actually use multiple cores when encoding mono streams*. It looks 
as though stereo streams get a core each, but mono stream encodes only 
run at 50% cpu.

Does anyone know if work has been done previously on encoding mono 
streams across multiple cores? We stand to save a lot of time!



* seen for the 'sse3mt encoder'
