Hmmm...  I'm hoping that the MPEG encoder can deal with frames that
don't arrive at a constant rate!  If it needs a constant rate, then we
need the QCam driver to throttle back the frame rate until it can
predict that it will really be able to generate the frame rate that
it's asked to, even in view of changing system load.
