I have no idea how difficult it would be, but if you were to add 
first-pass ratecontrol to snow I would be very grateful, and I'm sure 
many others would appreciate it. As far as I know that's the only thing 
holding snow back from behaving like a production-level codec, 
experimental status aside.
