I guessing here you are really refering to Lyrics3 tags, which are placed 
directly before any ID3v1 tags. Unfortunaltly they are not currently 
supported by TagLib which only understands ID3v1-2 and APE tags in MP3s.

skip the older Lyrics3v1 would be a lot more work), and a loop shouldn't 
really be necessary since Lyrics3 tags _must_ be placed exactly before the
ID3v1 tag.

Do you know any software for linux that writes Lyrics3 tags, I can use for
