As convenient as "-report" can be I usually do not recommend it because
by default it uses the "verbose" log level which definitely lives up to
its name: it's needlessly too verbose for general help. The verbosity
usually exceeds my laziness threshold and I tend to just move on to a
different question.

The FFREPORT environmental variable can be used instead, but I don't
know if that works with Windows, and it would probably be too confusing
for some users.
