I like the concept of being able to specify as a module parameter.

Perhaps we could have a magic marker on the string to define if the
existing frame sizes should be kept - or if this is just a complete
override ?

vivid.webcam=640x480@15,320x240@30 # Specify sizes explicitly
vivid.webcam=+640x480@15,320x240@30 # Append to existing frames
^ Magic Marker

We might of course want multiple rates per frame,

vivid.webcam=640x480@15-25-30-90-120, # Separator to be defined...

I think mandatory would be annoying yes.

Thus my suggestion for a magic marker above :)
