There are two save calls in the MPEG::File API; you'll want to use the one 
that lets you specify which tags to save.

That does however have the side effect of stripping the tags which aren't 
saved.  If you file a wishlist item in KDE's bugtracking system that'll 
remind me to add a bool parameter to turn off stripping the unsaved tags 
before 1.4.

Also note that for future questions the taglib-devel mailing list (CC'ed) is 
the appropriate place.



There are 10 types of people in the world: Those who understand binary, and 
those who don't.
