Well, here too -- I can take care of the JuK side of things if this goes in...
Once JuK cuts over to using TagLib this should be about a 5 line change. ;-)
(Though there would obviously have to be more changes in TagLib.)

No -- I was only halfway motivated on this since I really don't like the idea
of having different features for different backends.

Probably reasonable -- since what I've got on the feature plan will require
rewriting some of this stuff anyway, I'll look at it then.

I'll take a look at the file format once it's relevant. At this point I'm not
scared of much. :-) (Note that TagLib doesn't rely on the Xiph.org libs, so
if it's in the file we can get to it. :-) )
Many people would sooner die than think; in fact, they do so.
