I'm against this whole tempfile thing. Why doesn't xvid just use the
user-configured name for a 2pass file if it needs one? Or is this used
for something else?? There's been this assumption that a temp file is
necessary with no explanation of why, and IMO it's extremely bad for a
_codec_ to create files on disk, temporary or not, if not requested.
