	In an ideal world, sure. One major caveat, however, is that
Quicktime doesn't use a bunch of neat little codec DLL files that can be
used like we're using the win32 codec DLL files. In Quicktime versions 4
and 5, most of the program's meat is contained in an enormous DLL named
quicktime.qts which doesn't advertise a bunch of decoder functions, like
the win32 codecs do.

	In a nutshell, that's why the same principle isn't entirely
