var would let people choose between divx4linux and xvid since these codecs
appear to be incompatible.  Also, xvid-0.9.0 builds fine, though I haven't
tested encoding (and if possible, change source@pipeline to jap1@ionet in the

the use var exists, but neither mplayer, nor xine uses it as far as i can tell

There now is a global xvid use flag, and I just closed out bug #30242.

Slip this in after the security bug is handled.

Looks like the bug this depends on was fixed. Did I miss something or is it OK to close this bug?
