[FFmpeg-devel] [PATCH] Implement common show_banner and show_version functions

Hi all,

the idea is to provide more consistency in behaviour and appearance
across the ff* utils. For example to show up the banner on stderr at
program startup seems like a good idea, and this patch makes trivial
to implement such a feature for ffserver and ffplay too in a
consistent manner.

A drawback of this patch is that it requires to define for each
ff* tool the variables program_name and program_birth_year.

Suggested log: $subject.

Hope you'll find this patch (mildly) useful.
