Help: I need a proper method to detect 99% of all mp3 files

in K3b I need to be able to say if a certain file is mp3 or not (as with every 
other format). The current detection method is a mess but I have no idea how 
to properly handle all the different mp3 flavors without looking at the hole 
file (the test needs to be fast).
Has anyone a good idea? Does taglib contain a proper check which I could copy?

Thanks a lot,
