This seems to work pretty nicely. I've only tested with one 1439-second
file, but so far I have the following observations:

- On this file, snow ends up rather short of the target bitrate for the
first pass: 679 kbit/sec vs. 800. Lavc MPEG-4 and x264 get closer, at
around 790 and 750, respectively.
- Even so, the second pass hits the target bitrate very well -- much
better than when I use vqscale for the first pass instead of vbitrate
and the target quantizer I pick results in too low a bitrate.
- Adding a third pass makes no apparent difference.

Note that I started testing this before the multiple reference frames
commit, so that could change things.
