Comment (by redneb):

 I don't think mapping `comp` to the `-q` flag is a good idea: `comp`
 refers to the encoding computational complexity (i.e. encoder speed), not
 the audio quality. So this like the `lame` `-q` flag (which `ffmpeg` maps
 to `-compression_level`) and not the `-V` `lame` flag (which `ffmpeg` maps
 to `-q`). So I think the current mapping of `comp` to `-compression_level`
 is correct and consistent with other lossy audio codecs. I believe this
 issue can be marked as invalid.
