I originally designed ffprobe to be a part of FF-mpeg (and indeed it
shares code/design with it), and to me it would be still a good idea
to integrate it in FF-mpeg (no code duplication, better integration
with FF-mpeg and easier accessibility for the FF-mpeg users), if the
others maintainers agree and are not too much bothered by the many
problems it still has.

In this case I could eventually take up the maintanership of it and of
the various tools based on it.

Otherwise I can happily continue to maintain it as a separate project.

Best regards.
