Don't tempt me.  :)

It's just the sort of pointless crap I haven't been doing enough of
lately.  *cough cough GIF cough hack*

Although I've already written a script that takes raw text and raw
frames, renders those frames as ascii-art using that raw text, then
converts this colored ascii-art into pngs, which are fed into mencoder.
I'm practically there, but it's just not practical.  :)
