bond is an unknown quantity at this point

an unstable xvid build doesnt mean that your computer gets unstable of course :roll:

look guys like koepi, nic and umaniac dont make "individual" builds, their builds are all from the same original xvid source code (nothing hacked or so)

the 091 build is the same as koepis stable build, which is from 04.10.2002, which is pretty old
this build doesnt include newer features (without these xvid wouldnt be what it is) even if koepi call them "unstable" (nic for example doesnt call them unstable...)

features which are not included in 091 are
- b-frames
- vhq
- qpel
- chroma motion
- global motion compensation (gmc)
- chroma optimiser
- trellis quantisation

of course it can cause problems if you want to decode with the 091 build a movie encoded with a newer build (using the above mentioned features)

btw. the xvid developers themself (like syskin) recommend to always use the builds based on the latest sourcecode (search a little bit for that on doom9) ;)

but hey i dont want to force anybody to his luck...
