Sorry, this totally came across arrogant. I understand the nature of 
community-driven open-source projects. I should have been more specific to 
say that I don't understand the nature of the tools well enough to 
understand what is out of scope for ffmpeg. So I think you answered my 
question by saying that no, this is not out of scope, but it hasn't been 
implemented yet... Thanks!
