i'm not interested enough to find out.

if 3-pass can't get noticably better results even with a significantly
higher bit-rate (i tried it with VBR=1800) then it's not worth the time
to experiment with the same br. at least, it's not worth my time.

one-pass is good enough for me. quality is excellent, and size is good.
