I (slowly) start to understand:
This is not possible as command lines typically only work for specific
input - depending on input, a command line that is "proven to work"
only produces an error.
(Yes, FFmpeg is not that easily scriptable.)

Note that you will not easily find command lines that used to work:
Except for a change in the map syntax nine years ago, I only
remember minor changes.
