Yes, that is exactly what I do...  However, unless I use it by default,
it doesn't get a fraction as much use, and bug-testing.

It's not as easy to switch between them as it might seem.  Everything I
do with mencoder/mplayer is scripted, and to change between different
versions of them I have to modify several scripts in numerous places. 
Plus, the machine I use for most playback/encoding has no keyboard
attached, just a remote, and it's plugged-in to a TV.
