 Dear Maintainers,

 It would be nice if ffmpeg has some sort of command-completion so
 something like -

 ffmpeg -err_detect ignore_err -i video.mkv -c copy video_fixed.mkv

 I am thinking of something like bash-completion https://github.com/scop
 /bash-completion but in ffmpeg .

 It would be ok and probably nicer if it was a separate ffmpeg-completion
 package so overtime people could add the commands and swtiches that could
 be autocompleted after writing the first few letters.
