I thought <tekgro> was trying to parse the actual error output, but was
having difficulty because it was interspersed with non-error text?

Another possible solution to the version-header problem is to make sure
that it always *ends* with a specific pattern or piece of text (and
document what to look for), so that programs which are trying to parse
ffmpeg output know how much to skip. It could be something as flexible
as "the first non-indented line after the libfoo lines is the last line
of the header".
