Very nice idea, although imo using two separate output files is
somewhat awkward with current mencoder command line syntax. Perhaps
there's a better way to handle it...?

I don't know what other files you used, but it definitely won't work
with ogg audio in .ogm for the same reason -oac copy into an avi file
doesn't work with ogg audio. The mplayer ogg demuxer is broken and
strips the first packet/streamheader off the ogg at the demuxing
stage, so that reusing it is impossible. I discussed this with Arpi
once but we never came up with a good fix.

Maybe select just one stream at a time and run it twice if you want
both audio and video? I dunno...
