What about completely splitting the man pages?

man ffmpeg    -> directly ffmpeg-related options
man ffplay    -> directly ffplay-related options
man ffprobe   -> directly ffprobe-related options
man ffserver  -> directly ffserver-related options and config file syntax
man ffcodecs  -> all codecs options
man ffformats -> all formats options
man fffilters -> all filters docs
man ffmisc    -> syntax conventions, etc.

That is what zsh does, and I always found this very practical: when I am
looking for a way to convert the contents of a variable to uppercase, I do
not want to find keystrokes to convert a word in the edited command to
uppercase, several dozens of pages later.
