OggConvert 0.2.1 "Blitzkrieg and the doodlebug"

This is the third release of OggConvert, a simple Gnome utility to convert media files into the patent-free Theora, Dirac and Vorbis formats.

Dirac encoding requires GStreamer 0.10.11 and the Schroedinger encoder. Be aware that the encoder is still experimental, and that videos you encode today might
not be watchable in future as the decoder develops.

OggConvert is written in Python using PyGTK and PyGST. It is released under the GNU LGPL.

Release notes 

What's new in this version:

* Minor release to make life easier for packagers

* Incorrect '#!' invocations removed from source files

* oggconvert.desktop now conforms to freedesktop.org standards

* A basic manpage is included as some package formats (Debian) require one.
  It is not installed by Python distutils, but is available if packagers want to
  use it. It's not actually very useful, as OggConvert doesn't have a
  command-line interface yet.

  Thanks to Luca Falavigna for this.

* GObject threading initialised before gtk_init(), thus (hopefully) preventing
  Fedora's build server from predicting the end of the world.

* We still have no icon. I'd encourage packagers to ship OggConvert without one,
  rather than borrowing an icon from another app, to (hopefully) encourage
  somebody with more artistic talent than me to help out.

* Oh, okay, one proper bugfix: #119586 (Convert dialog is not resizable)
