I stand corrected, bufsize *is* unrelated, I was confused as I thought
that setting a bufsize would, for instance, be necessary to allow
mpeg4 to follow bitrate settings well.  Turns out, even with a
bufsize, it doesn't follow bitrate settings well, so feel free to
revert that one.

Of course, my personal preference would be to make the entire docu
into a wiki, then it could be elaborated/expanded on more easily...
