Hey, this is pretty awesome. :)  (Sorry for the late reply, btw)

May I ask how you're doing this work?  There is existing code out there to 
merge MPEG-4 into TagLib but it is derived from mplayer (or libfaad, I forget 
which) and is thus license incompatible.

If your work were to make its way to TagLib it would have to carry the same 
(or less restrictive) license.

But if you managed to write the code by reverse-engineering the format or 
using documentation (i.e. not just reimplementing from other code), that 
would probably be OK.

Um, where *is* the code?
