We had this discussion at least 42 times on the list by now. Maybe
taglib should get a quirks mode similar to html-renderers so the
application can decide if taglib should obey the id3 spec or do work
arounds at will.

IIRC The response from Scott was to fix such things inside the apps that
use Taglib. I never liked that because the quirk-fixes are reinvented in
every application.

Scott, would you accept such a quirks mode? If yes then I could have a
look at this topic and incorporate any quirk-patches others have found.

PS: sorry Xavier for mailing you this in private, Thunderbird and
mailinglists are tricking me all the time (usually using KMail) :(
