OK, but then from the UI perspective I would expect the filters
always to act on all inputs, but they don't:

$ ffmpeg -i test.m4v -filter_complex scale=640:480 test.mp4
Stream mapping:
  Stream #0:0 (h264) -> scale (graph 0)
  scale (graph 0) -> Stream #0:0 (libx264)
  Stream #0:1 -> #0:1 (aac -> libfaac)

Stream 0:2 or 0:v:1 is silently discarded - fine with me, but
it's surprising, don't you think?

Is it that the overlay filter just selects the _next_ video
stream regardless of whether a second -i input is given?
