That is my fault. I bumped it up one night and didn't think much of it. 
I never expected it would last uncommented on this long, to be honest, 
after someone said that they thought having two function calls didn't 
make sense. I just wanted my own to work. I figured, since people 
thought it was inelegant, someone would propose a better method.

The issue I saw is that if we changed the demuxer for everything, any 
program expecting certain values would have to be changed, or fail. This 
way, it only falls back on the alternate check if the first doesn't work.
