 Stefano, last two things (I hope ;-))
 1) mixing plain and xml-structured text is not that "useful". If user
wants xml output, this is what she/he wants
 2) in ffprobe -version output, I would include the version and the build, a la:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
  version="N-36301-g81980bf, Copyright (c) 2007-2011 the FFmpeg developers"
  build="built on Dec 31 2011 08:26:41 with gcc 4.6.1">
 <libavutil [attribute name + value pairs] />
 <libswresample [attribute name + value pairs] />
