I haven't done scientifically thorough testing but it has improved a lot
over the past few months and is definitely in a very usable state
quality-wise (in 256kbit I couldn't hear differences to the Apple encoder,
which regularly gets very high test scores, tested with HQ source material
and equipment) and probably much better maintained than a lot of other
pieces of non-experimental code. If there are no known, significant
stability issues +1.
