[FFmpeg-devel] [PATCH v2] doc/filters: drawtext: add example of printing texts on same baseline

Height of canvas produced by drawtext varies depending on symbols in
text, so add example for printing separate texts aligned horizontally.

Wording suggested by Lou Logan <lou at lrcd.com>

Signed-off-by: Andrey Utkin <andrey.utkin at pb.com>
Changes in v2:
 * Taken the wording of example and description Lou proposed
 * Added mention of @var{max_glyph_a} to "Note that..." phrase
   (is the markup used for this correct?)
 * Slightly edited commit message for clarity of meaning
   (dimensions vary -> height varies)
