I think it's more sane to enable it by default, leaving the user the
option to disable it. This means this should actually be possible, I
don't know from the top of my head whether -loop requires an argument.
IMHO it should. Just like -bframes that complains if it is supplied a
value "0" while this could be a very valid value if the default for a
certain codec (e.g. h264) is non-zero.

If there are no objections I volunteer to patch these two.
