Post processing in ffmpeg to move 'moov atom' in MP4 files (qt-faststart)

Is it possible to run ffmpeg from the command line which will either place the 'moov atom' metadata in the beginning of the MP4 file or run the qt-faststart as a post processing operation in ffmpeg so the generated file is stream-able through the internet?

I can of course run it as a separate command, but would prefer it to be something:
(a) as an option within ffmpeg, or
(b) as part of a post conversion, command line option when converting the video files via ffmpeg

For streaming, you're generally better off to stick it in an MPEG-TS rather than MP4. MP4 _can_ be streamed, but it's not really made for that purpose.

BTW, I think if you must use MP4, the MP4Box tool is probably better for that.
