Prints several errors and warnings concerning the consistency of mp3 files.
Lists stream attributes (color). Layer 1,2,3, mpeg1.0+2.0 are currently
supported.  CRC check for layer 3.
mp3check is very useful for incomplete mp3 detection as it can be used to
scan through your mp3 collection and find all mp3s that aren't perfect. Good
for use with many file sharing systems.
