Extra pictures are chained. That's how it always worked or has been supposed to work, to the extent that multiple pictures are supported.

Adding a different way to handle more than one picture vs zero or one picture is making things both more complicated and less consistent.

Draining is used to forcefully process buffers at EOS; this is also how audio works. It's just that nobody bothered to convert the filter_video(NULL) to drain_video(NULL). I disagree with changing the meaning/scope of drain.
