I think so too, but it depends on ffmpeg being able to dump the list of
channel names (FL=front left, LFE=low frequency, etc.) and channel layouts
("2.1"=FL+FR+LFE, etc.), and Stefano and I have different opinions on the
best way of doing it:

Stefano's argument is that they are two technically distinct lists and
therefore should logically be printed separately.

My argument is that the individual channel names and predefine channel
layouts are used in the same circumstances and can even be used together
(-channel_layout stereo+BC), and so it is convenient for the user to print
them together.

We were kind of waiting on a third opinion about the most convincing
argument, and then it got forgotten. If this is decided one way or another,
I can update the two patches quite soon.
