Accepted that it's convenient although -filter_complex (global) is a 
different beast than -filter (positional, on output).

given the doc's synopsis of
	ffmpeg \
	[global_options] \
	{[input_file_options] -i input_url} ... \
	{[output_file_options] output_url} ...

should global options be allowed to intermingle with positional options?
should the examples be rewritten to follow the synopsis (put all globals first)?
(and are there times when a "global" option becomes positional?)

I'm willing to do some of the editing....
