Subject: Do we need --list=formats?

While for bash completion, parsing usage output is fine, a GUI might
want to list additional information, e.g. FORMAT_NAME and may be even
implementation details like  [128/128 BS SSE2] (so that the user might
see which formats support OMP...)
How hard would implementing this be?

While we are at it:
Should we also add a --list=subformats, which does the same as
--subformat=LIST, except that it writes to stdout instead of stderr?

Then we could discourage the use of --subformat=LIST.
(My bash completion script could even try to replace --subformat with
--list=subformats.)
And in the next release we just get rid of --subformats?
