 Summary of the bug:

 I suggest adding a metadata value to the astats output to record the
 maximum variance in audio samples. The maximum variance would be the
 maximum absolute value of sample n minus sample n-1. This information
 could be useful to discover spikes, audio errors, edits, etc.

 Imagined use:
 ffprobe -f lavfi movie=movie.mov:s=a,astats=metadata=1 -show_entries
