Really it's an engiTun issue because they're abusing the comment frame 
where they should be using a GEOB frame.

It's not been terribly long since someone suggested the opposite.  The 
problem is on things like this that there is no correct behavior because 
different GUIs decide to handle the same data differently and presenting 
a user interface that corresponds 1-to-1 with the data model would, 
well, suck.
