Having same quality and same filesize with mpeg2 and mpeg4 isn't 
possible. A good rule of thumb i guess is that the size of mpeg2 two 
times the filesize of xvid. (I'm having nice results with 1600 on mpeg2 
and i guess 800 is 'good enough' for xvid. quality of mpeg2enc and 
speed of ffmpeg would be the killer ;)
