I doubt most users realize that by looking at the page. They can find the
appropriate man-page by doing man ffm<tab> in the shell.
Currently, the page index is really cluttered for no purpose, and I often
see users ending up in "libavfilter" section instead of "filters",
probably because the library section is easier to read, and the components
just looks like a "FFmpeg words soup".

Maybe we should change that one as well.
• ffmpeg (full help)
• ffplay (full help)
• ffprobe (full help)
• ffserver (full help, sample configuration file)
