Undocumented feature "nomouse" in x11grab

There is an additional feature missing in documentation for x11grab. Namely, the following command is usual for x11grab:

ffmpeg -f x11grab -i :0.0+10,20 ...

and it instructs ffmpeg to grab the display of the monitor 0, desktop 0, starting from the coordinate (10,20), but it can be extended like this:

ffmpeg -f x11grab -i :0.0+10,20+nomouse ...

which would cause the mouse to not being captured in the output video, but the feature is not documented in ffmpeg's documentation located at and it would be nice to update it :)

    doc/indevs: document missing options in x11grab section
    Add documentation for options draw_mouse, framerate, and video_size.
    In particular, fix trac ticket #1314.

Note that "nomouse" in filename is deprecated, -draw_mouse 0 should be used instead.
