Comment (by spookybathtub):

 It would be useful in any script which calls ffmpeg multiple times.  For
 example, I have a bash script to transcode several video clips when called
 from a command-line.  This particular script suppresses most of the
 console output by using `-loglevel warning -stats`.  This way, the user
 sees a small progress indicator, without a flood of information.  In case
 of some encode problem, it would be nice to have the full log available to
