pushed some code to allow easy testing of 1.2, before you had to edit
the source to enable it.
also to get good compression with gop=1 you need to use some statistics
generated by -pass 1 though these dont need to be from teh same file
as the actual encoding uses.
if someone wants to test ffv1.2, especially with diverse raw material,
this would be quite interresting. Especially knowing where it performs
