I tentatively approve this patch, but there is the catch of first pass
options: "veryslow", "ultrafast", and "placebo" all use bframe values
different from default, which would mean fastfirstpass/slowfirstpass
presets would no longer work.  Without a flexible preset-logic system,
we would have to have ultrafast-firstpass, veryfast-firstpass, and so
forth, for first pass presets.
