Thanks! I think those changes are good to apply, except that I think you
should consider changing moving "(best)" from subq=9 to subq=10.

I haven't tested this parameter yet, but x264.c has subq=10 in the two
slowest presets, so it ought to be the best for quality. Actually, it
has "--subme 10", but subme and subq are aliases.
