I know it is in the name, but mjpegtools generate (what I thought was) mpg 
streams for both VCD, SVCD and DVD's.

What gives?

Please consult http://mjpeg.sourceforge.net/ and clarify this - I will 
greatly appreciate that.

btw: I think ffmpeg can encode mpegs too - yup: 

So, IMHO, that leaves transcode, ffmpeg and mjpegtools. Right?

The University of North Carolina has finally found a network server that,
although missing for four years, hasn't missed a packet in all that time.
Try as they might, university administrators couldn't find the server.
Working with Novell Inc. (stock: NOVL), IT workers tracked it down by
meticulously following cable until they literally ran into a wall. The
server had been mistakenly sealed behind drywall by maintenance workers.
