Ah, I wasn't even aware. Feel free to amend the commit message.

I couldn't wrap my head around some of the filters. Sometimes, no other
mention is even found on the web (incl. mailing lists) except for e.g.
quotes of the sources. (I did try to reverse-engineer the sources
carefully.) I reckoned some doc is better than no doc.

E.g. I couldn't figure out whether all filters are "still" useful, or
whether documenting them may confuse someone. Was the MP3 header
compression, as once created by a now-removed bitstream filter,
proprietary to ffmpeg? Was it found in the wild? Or: What is the movsub
filter pair actually useful for?

I worry too much.

Thanks for the review,
