If I understand the issue correctly, the problem with writing MOOV only 
arises when a user edits the metadata and it ends up bigger in size than 
it was before so you run out space in between FTYP and MDAT.

Now, wouldn't it be convenient to write a temp file where you can nicely 
store the atoms in the right order (and maybe add some padding after the 
metadata for future editing)? Some developers have chosen this route 
anyway because you don't risk wrecking a file when the app or computer 
crashes while writing.

About checking or reviewing, I'd be happy to help as much as I can. I 
must say I'm a bit handicapped right now because I'm separated from all 
my own computers by a sea for the next few months. :) I'm using the 
Powerbook of a friend to browse and e-mail and miss some of my own 
stuff. Still worth a try though. Good luck and keep me posted!
