Normally, yes it would. However, if you run mkmovie and provide all the
arguments on the command line, it won't try to run them, thus avoiding
the entire problem :)

Ditto. I found it to be a pretty good idea to encapsulate the steps as
much as possible. Now, that DOESN'T mean there aren't hidden
dependencies which I'm not aware of. It just means that those routines
are as broken down as I can make them.

Ahhh, dangit. Well, it'll still be good to read how somebody else did
the same things I did. Will probably learn at least one thing worth
