Ok, thank you.

This doesn't sound very hard to do myself (I'll probably just do it afterwards 
instead of changing the ffmpeg code, so I don't have to maintain that patch).

If I could make a suggestion, it might be something that would be good to have 
in ffmpeg, though, perhaps as a part of -movflags.

Or, if no one is interested in adding it, would you take a patch? I might have 
time to do something at some point.
