 I am not convinced that this is something that FFmpeg needs to solve.
 I am thinking vaguely in terms of the "UNIX philosophy".
 FFmpeg already supports useful gradations of error messages (quiet,
 Combining in a simple pipeline with some standard text processing
 utilities should yield a variety of output behaviors, e.g one can redirect
 portions of the stream, filter them, etc.

 I certainly don't think adding a new option is the right way of going
 about this.
 Can you give a concrete instance of this with the usual output and your
 desired output?
 Sometimes messages that we have are too verbose/too little/at the wrong
 so it would be helpful to know whether this is a bug with them.

 In any case, please give more details, full console output, sample file
 (if any), etc.
