Arpi says this isn't possible, since you have to know the fps when you
first start writing the output file, but the detection can't take
place until several frames have passed. Also some (crappy) encodes mix
back and forth between the two... :(

Is it really that hard to type -ofps 23.976? Ripping DVDs is
complicated enough that it requires a lot of user intervention to get
it right, so trying to automate this doesn't really make a lot of
sense anyway until a lot more can be automated, which is still a long
ways away.
