Why add a GUI? A GUI for mencoder does not require any special support
from mencoder (like mplayer's GUI uses internal hooks and not simply
the slave mode), so it's much better to make a separate program that
uses mencoder as its backend. mplayer's main developers are all
allergic to GUIs ;) so they wouldn't program one anyway.
Of course you can bloat mencoder into something huge and ugly, but this
is a case where a completely separate program is suited better.
