Detailed Description

This is a data sink class which takes a file as a destination of picture data.

If PL_FILE_MAPPING is defined (this is the case under windows), the data is written directly to the mapped file. If not, the class allocates a buffer large enough to hold a complete image file. But we don't know its size before it's actually encoded, so we have to be generous or "accidents will happen" TODO: Use mapped files for the *nix version as well.
