iTunes can read ID3v2.3/ID3v2.4 only in Latin-1 or UTF-16. It can't read ID3v2.4
tags with text values encoded using UTF-8.
Btw, I'm using (for my tiny tagger) modified version of TagLib that can write
also ID3v2.3 tags. I coded it mainly for compatibility with Windows Media Player
as it can't read 2.4 tags at all. But, I know, you're probably not interested in
including something like that in TagLib :)
