Servo+QRD1114 Wheel Encoder -- Fail!

I need wheel encoders on my current project. I believe that the gearing of the servo motors combined with the low weight of the robot won't allow the bot to roll by itself very much. Because of that I figure I don't really need full-tilt quadrature encoders. I also only have two of the QRD1114s, and I need two drive units, so each servo only gets one eye.
