the important functionality which istanbul accomplishes can be done
via the cmdline with gstreamer cmdline tools if there is a need as
long as you have the gst 0.8.12 on your system.

gst 0.8.12 is finally available in fc4 updates-testing so don't even
technically need anything from core-development or extras to
get-er-done on fc4. You can use gst-launch and build a shell
scriptable command to do the screen capture to a raw file.. then
another gst-launch command to re-encode it to ogg... mimicing what
istanbul wraps into UI gloss. For development/FC5, the gst08 cmdline
tools will most likely be back into Extras in time for fc5 release,
even if istanbul doesn't get rebuilt in time.

Oh and if you are really really clever.. you can do a gst-launch
command that records audio at the same time as its capturing the
screen.. something istanbul doesn't do yet.
