I don't understand what problem did actually foo->libfoo renaming solved. As I 
said before there is no codec named libfaac or libmp3lame. The change not 
only breaks existing behaviour but also doesn't make any sense.

The case of multiple vorbis encoders would be better solved by giving the 
native encoder another name.

In the end you end up breaking lots of things then at least bump major so 
version so that people will know something is changed.
