I very much think it is not worth it.
1) The speed difference is at most relevant when only remuxing and
not decoding. And even then disk speed is likely to be limiting.
2) The encoder is broken and everything points towards that it was
(and most likely still is) not getting any testing beyond
"it works on Windows, let's ship it". The decoders on Windows
generally all always do parsing, thus it is likely this encoder
will have further bugs that require parsing that its authors
won't notice in their testing.
