[Swftools-common] swfextract file naming

Currently, swfextract always names its output files "output" (ex. output.swf, output.jpg, etc.), regardless of how many IDs you are extracting at a time.  This means that if you enter, for example:

swfextract -j 100, 101, 102 input.swf

The program creates an output.jpg file, then overwrites it twice, instead of giving you three files.

Studying swfextract.c, I saw this section:

sprintf(name, "pic%d.jpg", GET16(tag->data));
if(numextracts==1) {
filename = destfilename;
    filename = "output.jpg";

And similar sections for png, etc.  If you comment out or remove the if-blocks, like so:

sprintf(name, "pic%d.jpg", GET16(tag->data));
/*if(numextracts==1) {
filename = destfilename;
    filename = "output.jpg";

Swfextract behaves smarter and names its output files pic100.jpg, pic101.jpg, etc.  Apparently the "output" name was only meant to be used in special cases, but it somehow gets used all the time.

So, could those changes be made to the codebase?  It'd make swfextract alot less unwieldy...

Oh, and I'll attach my modified file.
