When running through the code I discovered I have two more patches. The first 
is the zlib support already posted on this mailing-list, the other is 
automatic utf8 detection in ID3v1 tags. Basically it seperates strings to 
belong to one of 3 categories:
1. ASCII only
2. Contains only valid UTF-8 extensions (unlikely to appear naturally in 
3. Contains extentions that are not valid UTF-8 (assume default).

Unfortunatly it currently only works on a string to string basis, it would be 
even more reliable if it worked on the entire tag.

I've attached the patch for review.
