(I used to work on parts of the FFmpeg channel layout code, I know it is
broken to some degree but I still hope to get it fixed one day...)

Are you using this feature already (internally) or did you just feel like it is
missing? (Sorry, it is not meant offending.) I wonder if all this complexity
really has a real-world use-case...

How is "chnl" related to "chan"? I thought I remember that "chan" already
offers possibilities for custom channel layouts.
Can both be used in the same file?

Thank you, Carl Eugen
