Virtual recoding

Encoding in a VM takes only a small overhead -- to the tune of 28 minutes instead of 25, in a test I ran yesterday. Only disk-intensive operations (like extracting a track from a video file, or recoding AAC to WAV) is noticably slower -- but I can live with that perfectly fine.

It seems I have recreated my whole re-encoding toolchain in a VM -- from nothing to fully operational in three evenings. I am mightily pleased.

Time to configure GRUB to boot into Ubuntu by default again.
