The problem is that I do not know how to represent the v2type within
the .img file.  As far as I can tell the MapTk program does not
create such files, although it seems that it can read them.
As there is no source code, that doesn't help much.

I don't think that there is a problem knowing how it is represented in the
.typ file, as the TypDisplay program[1] can correctly display types greater
than 0xff in .typ files created by MapTk.
