Contrary to popular belief, x264 isn't very cpu hungry, especially not if
you set speed=100 (via command line or tray). PNG on the other hand... is a
real cpu pig.
Note that when we select x264, small regions of the screen are still sent
as png (or rgb24). In 0.10, we can also use webp lossless for those.
