The windows shell can't comment inline, can't tagging with new line simply
and the script file is not compatible with Linux.
I use both operating system. This solution makes it  possible to create
UNIVERSAL control files.
Shell can't make  dynamically generated script with etc.:
http://localhost/control.txt argument without file operations.
This parameter is similar to -filter_script parameter.
It has only advantages, and no disadvantages. Please integrate this patch.
Thank you.

I do not think that FFmpeg needs another shell-like parser with its own
variants of escaping rules and its own limitations. This is the task of a
shell, and shells do that very well, much better than this.
