Not that it's worth much, nor do I care, but I always preferred 'XviD'
though I do remember 'Xvid' being made the consistent spelling.
Whichever is chosen, I don't think it really matters. It's not like

the project. Even if it were inconsistent people would still be able
to comprehend that 'Xvid'/'XviD' was the external project in question.
