Thanks!  The change makes perfect sense, I just had to dig around for while before figuring it out.  Do you know if there's a patch in the works to make 'ffmpeg  --help' report something about these?  It seems like it might require building some "handshaking" between them that might not already exist in general form.

Check x264 docs. As far as I understood the purpose of the change was not to duplicate efforts from the x264 project and that is documented quite well.

try x264 --fullhelp
