My question was rather: how does the "maximum" quality change, i.e.
at the highest reasonable setting.
I'd expect it to rather improve, but I think you so far only tested really
fast settings (22 seconds is not a long encoding time in any way,
even the original 1 minute something is still "acceptable", I remember
when MP3-encoding was done at I think 1/8th real-time...)
