Luckily I don't have another command that starts with `eye', so
for interactive usage, bash autocompletion works fine. But in 
scripts, I have to type the uppercase letter. And there I don't 
rely on the existence of aliasses. (Actually, the driving script is 
in Perl; that makes easier parsing of eyeD3 output, to see if it 
changed the v2 tag and one should add another invocation to change 
the v1 tag as well.)
