[Ffmpeg-devel] [PATCH] [RFC] Preparing for new grab interface

I'm writing a new grabbing selection interface. As a first step, attached
patch moves the #ifdef jungle from ffmpeg.c to the configure script. Also
allows the user to specify a default grab format in configure.

Additionally, I plan to:
- Add a -gv option to specify video grab format (and -ga for audio). This
removes the need for x11: from the grab device, and moves it to "-gv
- Add a -gi option (with no args) to specify a grab input, much like the
-i option. So the device is treated as an input file at that point of the
command line, instead of having to be treated by prepare_grab. This way,
it can specify the size it wants just like a normal file, instead of
having to rely on -s for the output file.

Please tell me if any this would be welcome, or if I'm just wasting my time.
