If you've got constant bit rate, you can do a 2 step process where you
encode to a raw file (a .h264), then use mp4creator directly.  You could
do the same with each elementary stream.

If someone was interested and knowledgeable about libavformat, I'd be
happy to work with them to integrate the mp4v2 library - it is a fairly
straight forward library to use.  We (developers of mpeg4ip) will try to
keep up with the ISO, ISMA standards, and have put interoperability first.
