Just FYI, there's a whole range of numbers that are for dynamic engines,
the details of which I can't remember of the top of my head... but
basically, since 5.0-ish (maybe before), there also should be a string
of the engine in the FRM rather than just the magic number (but the
magic number is used in places in the code... because the code is
ancient and awful).
