I think most of the bits and pieces are all there in the code now, but no
one has taken the time to add the glue to allow remote transcoding.
Originally, we couldn't write to remote files, we could only read them, but
in order to support some of the changes that Robert has made to MythVideo
over the past couple years, I added remote file writing to the protocol.

The only underlying support that I can think of that is missing is the
ability to rename a remote file.  Since we transcode to a temp file then
swap it into place. 

Patches welcome...
