[FFmpeg-user] feature request/suggestion: make the server and ffplay into sink filters :)

Now that ffmpeg has high quality filter ability with libavfilter, I
was thinking...
it would be great if at some point you could basically do the
equivalent of the following:

Split an input stream, send it to a "file" output as well as to a
"server" output, or optionally also to a "view" output (ffplay).
Kind of combining all of the various output options into sinks.

Or maybe this is already in the works?
This would allow me to not have to revert to VLC if, for instance, a
users wants to view a stream as it is encoded (which some do).
