 Maybe it might be good to implement some kind of grouping of command line
 options, to make it more clear and readable (especially for new users of
 FFmpeg) and to clearly distinguish which option belongs to what. Consider
 the following example:

 ffmpeg {-f mjpeg -r 25 -i input} {-c:v libx264 -crf 23 -preset medium}
 {-acodec libfaac -ab 32k -ar 44100 -ac 2} {-f mpegts output}

 Here we have all the options grouped by their associated
 inputs/outputs/streams. This would (maybe) help make the command lines
 more readable.
