The same way it always has.  This doesn't add any new logic, just adds
a higher preference level to the existing logic.  Currently goes
DTS->AC3->Whatever, new logic goes TrueHD->DTS->AC3->Whatever.  If the
codec doesn't exist in the file, it falls through to the next highest
weighted.  It also weights by number of channels in a given audio
