I haven't even looked at their code for quite exactly that reason.
The primary problem with NVENC is, that there is only very poor
documentation available, so I can only implement stuff based on reading
the header and experimenting with the API and the available examples.
NVIDIA employees clearly are in a better position for this, as they most
likely have a much larger insight into how NVENC works internaly.
I'm quite sure all of their features could be added to my version.
