its on topic if you plan to write a patch, its off topic if its just
a user question ...

i dont think so either but i didnt write our mp2 encoder

id awnser your questions if i would knew the awnsers for sure, but i would
have to read the source as well, and fabrice who wrote the mp2 encoder is too
busy to awnser (and possibly doesnt even read all mails here anymore)

i think we dont support M/S nor intensity stereo in the encoder but thats
just from a quick look at the source ...
mp2 does not allow M/S but just intensity as has already been pointed out
