actually with jpeg (and thus motion jpeg) it _is_ possible to rotate
without reencoding. see "man jpegtran". unfortunately there are no
tools to do this with the frames in an avi file, but in principle you
could easily write such a tool... it'd be a MUCH better idea than
reencoding, since reencoding will hurt quality a lot.
