MPEG-1 has the fancy feature that it defines things as MPEG-2, or even
2.5 while they are still MPEG-1. It is all MPEG-1. MPEG-2.5 does not
exist, it's just a marketing name. The real MPEG-2 (the one output by
faac, not the one output by lame) is AAC, like MPEG-4.

And making mpegversion a double is going to break things horribly in other
places. Please revert that and do as if the names MPEG-2/2.5 don't exist.
