FTLIW, I don't like it, because it's a senseless change which breaks the
neat 'mirror'ing of the original name. (I tend to be quite fond of
capitalization and punctuation games.) However, that complaint would be
more reasonably directed at the XviD team itself, and I suppose it's
kind of inappropriate to refuse to accept an official change...

side of it.
