Allow output file for -report option to be specified.

I find the -report option very useful and run a process that converts many incoming videos and stores the output of the -report option in case any later assessment is needed. Currently in order to file the report with the video I have to first find the report (either by searching the present working directory or grepping the ffmpeg output) and then move it to the place where I want to store it. There isn't really a way to predict what the output report filename will be until after the ffmpeg command has started.
I propose implementing an option to specify the filename or directory of the report.
Note: I realize that I could simply redirect and sdterr and sdtout to a file, but the output of the -report option additionally carries additional contextual data such as the exact command line and starting date which I'd like to store as well.
