Yes, you are right. But as written in the README, it should be a very good
quality when you want to obtain the highest compression with unlimited video
bit rate. I don't pretend to be 100% right in what I say, just I have not
seen any "magic" combination of libavcodec option that gives exactly what
I want. There are too many options, it depends of what you want, AND
your video source is important too.
By the way, if you or anybody else has a suggestion on a set of codec
options for the _BEST QUALITY_ I will glady include them in the program.

Mmm... I think there is a little bit of confusion here.
abitrate=$abr is used with libavcodec to create the mp3 audio stream
preset=$abr or preset=standard is used with mp3lame lib for the same purpose
Both usage are possible:
will use: -oac mp3lame -lameopts preset=standard
will use: -oac mp3lame -lameopts preset=aaa
will use: -oac lavc -lavcopts acodec=mp3:abitrate=aaa
If you are asking why bother about libavcodec if mp3lamelib is better,
the answer is that with libavcodec I can have not only mp3, but also mp2 and ac3.
And if you use one of the preset encode options -encode 1 .... -encode 4
it will use -oac mp3lame -lameopts preset=standard
