Comment (by heleppkes):

 ffmpeg doesn't use the CLI encoder binary, but links to a library. You
 can't link to the same library twice (even if build differently), because
 its function names would collide.

 Unless x264 offers a way to have multiple bitdepths in the same library,
 perhaps similar to how x265 has done it, this won't really be possible.
