how do i get the TBPM info there via taglib? artist, title,... are clear.

hey, another lindy - Dj :)

>> scripts to do this are long gone, but easy to create.

probably would be. But it looks to me like a "dirty" way. Especially, 
since when you're not dj-ing from your computer, you loose all that 
information, and carry it along.

So, if there is a place in the id2.4 spec definded, why not put it there.
