The only other user of option roms (SeaBIOS) uses a different type
number to prevent issues once the optionrom subheader appears (which is
more or less announced in the source).
It's also doing its _own_ thing to handle compression (namely, more
filename magic).

So there's no risk in changing the format used with the "official" type
number, and there's the chance that SeaBIOS picks up the change, so
we're able to work with the same set of images.
