iam fine with that, just keep the list compact, id prefer it not to eat
up 500k
we also have many very similar codecs (mpeg variants) which take a very
similar set of options these should be stored efficiently preferably not
duplicated for each codec
this safes not only memory and disk but also reduces the number of files
which would need to be changed if all mpeg codecs get a new option
