So actually I found it's not too hard to add an initial timecode to the 
mov file:

         av_dict_set( &st->metadata, "timecode", "hh:mm:ss:ff", 0 );

where "hh:mm:ss:ff" is the initial timecode.
When you open the mov in quicktime and display the timecode you get the 
correct value.

But yeah I would definitly love to see the ffmbc anyway fork but I can't 
find the source code :( ...
