I believe your KISS statement probably now means any form of co-operation with you and development of your idea will most-likely be halted. I agree with others that re-presentation of stderr messages should solely be the responsibility of any 3rd party app that decides it wants to wrap ffmpeg in warm and cluddly clothing.

On the other hand, you could of course get the source from GIT and submit a patch for review, or just run your own patched version to give you what you want - it's a free world of course.
