Thanks! Definitely worth a try.  I also realised I can make one 1.4gb 
avi, and split it with mencoder -ovc copy -oac copy and use the -enpos 
and -ss switches, since mencoder's produced avi's index would be correct.

This is what you get from three pass:
Pass 1:  encode audio - mencoder then gives you the desired bitrate for 
650mb, 700mb, 800mb as well as 2x650mb, 2x700mb, 2x800mb
