As nice as FlasK is at what it does, it really has one purpose:
transcoding from DVDs.

The one thing I don't have under *IX that I would very much like is a
general purpose transcoding utility.  The one I'd suggest you emulate is
VirtualDub.  Gstreamer seems to have the framework in place to handle it.

If you want to know specificly what I prefer in VirtualDub over FlasK I'd
be happy to tell you.  It goes well beyond what formats are supported.
