I slightly prefer "keep" because I have a feeling it describes better what
happens: MPlayer keeps the font in memory, whether it will actually use it
again or not. But I am not a native English speaker, and maybe I am mapping
French nuances on the corresponding English words.

More objectively, "keep" is a more common word, so people will remember more

This would not do, because the patch as it is keeps the fonts from all the
files, not just the first one. It is easy to see by just looking at the
code: the option inhibits the reset that happens between the files.

-ass-keep-fonts-between-files would do, but I find it uselessly long.
