It's a rather straightforward task to convert between rpm and other formats. A 
src.rpm is basically just a cpio image. But anyhow, I have created a 
tar.gz-package for your and other's convenience.

Eivind M. Hvidevold and I will continue to work on the bindings, and we have 
completed the bindings for much more of TagLib's API since my previous mail 
to taglib-devel.

In particular the specific file-level classes are wrapped along with the ID3 
classes. We have also successfully tested id3v2-tags with picture storing and 
retrieval, along with the other types. For a complete list just look inside 
the TagLib.py file, or do a pydoc TagLib after installing the bindings.

Everyone that is interested can pick up the new version of the bindings here:

Feel free to submit bug reports for the bindings.
