So let's see, you have two options:

1) Wait for vobcopy/mplayer -dumpstream/whatever to slowly copy the
   dvd to your hd, then do the audio prepass quickly, then do the 2
   video passes.

2) Do the audio prepass slowly from dvd, then do the two video passes
   from dvd.

Sounds to me like both take the same total time, but option #1 also
uses several gigs of hd space and puts extra wear on the hd....what a
great idea!! ;))
