The "version" header is shown before the parsing of the commandline is
We could print it just before the transcode() function (or the ff*
corresponding function) is called, but since the parsing is done
before you could have the app printing an error and exit, in this case
you don't have the version message in the error log (which is annoying
in case you are reading a bug-report).
* implement pre-parsing of the commandline (overkill?)
* remove the version header, and ask the users to always report ff*
-version when reporting bugs / asking for help (and you can bet that
they mostly won't)
