XviD is useful for fairly fast and high quality encoding. According to
what I've seen, it takes a lot more CPU time to make lavc MPEG-4 meet or
exceed XviD's quality.
I do not know if many ffmpeg users use XviD, though.
Nobody start a flamewar over whether lavc MPEG-4 or XviD is better; they
are strong in slightly different applications, and we've been over it
Also, now that I think about it, lavc's xvidrc depends on XviD.
