I understand the Sorenson 3 is largely a modified/primitive H.264
implementation. Would it be possible to modify the current H.264
encoder to encode svq3? In practice, I can't see much use from this as
Quicktime 7 supports H264, however it might be useful for
compatibility with older versions of Quicktime, or machines that would
not be able to decode full H.264.
