Actually, what I was referring to is the polling thread. There is a
thread which monitors the transcoders, and spawns new ones when allowed,
as well as replacing the original file with the transcoded one. We only
need one of these per backend.
The transcoder itself is a seperate process, and the user can control how
many may run simultaneously, so perhaps on a multiprocessor system, you
could set it to '2' (thoughg even on my single-CPU machine I normally
have it set to 2 ro 3)
