This patch allows the encoding to be done on a remote
machine using ssh.

I find this useful for two reasons. 1) The encoding
can be done on a server much faster than the client on
which the ripping is done. 2) You cannot get reading
glitches while encoding and ripping at the same time.

First you need to set up your ssh keys to login without
passwords.
Then you go to the new Config->Encode->SSH pane. You
must click "Encode file over ssh", enter the ssh
command name and ssh arguments (the host name is
enough). You must also make sure that the dir you use
for ripping and encoding is accessible from both
machines with the same access privileges (I use NFS
with automount).

There is a minor bug with the progress display. On
some occasions the indicator is false because grip
cannot see the file. I believe this is an
NFS/automount issue.

This has been tested with oggenc and lame only. Happy
ripping!
