Yes, I reordered the options alphabetically some time ago. However,
the codec specific options are still in the order they were in some
time ago. Alphabetical order is not always the best. Some options
are related to each other and thus best grouped together. You know
the options best, so feel free to reorder them alphabetically or in
another sane way.
Another thing: I think not all XviD options are documented at the
moment. Maybe you could go through libmpcodecs/ve_xvid.c and
libmpcodecs/ve_xvid4.c and document the missing options. I would even
consider something like
FIXME: Document this.
an improvement, so this could be a start.
