[Swftools-common] suggestions

In February 2010, this patch was applied to swfextract:

I used grep on the source code of 0.9.2 and it still includes
"outputformat". However, when I run swfextract without options, it
doesn't mention --outputformat or -a.

When I install swftools on my system (GNU/Linux Mint 15) using the
package manager, I also get 0.9.2. I comes with a man page for
swfextract that also does not mention --outputformat or -a.

When I use the command mentioned on aforementioned page of the
swftools-common archive for...
...I get a core dump.

Since both swfextract itself and the man page do not explain what
--outputformat and -a do, I can only guess that -a means all.

- Both swfextract and its man page should explain what --outputformat
  and -a are meant to do.
- Please make -a (--all) or -e (--everything) extract everything
  without having to use --outputformat "extract_%06d.%s", because the
  latter is too complicated for the uninitiated.
- Maybe look into the core dump for the aforementioned SWF file.
