I'm not an Amarok or TagLib developer, but I'd say an important first step is 
to get the ball rolling on TagLib 2.0.  Previous messages in this thread have 
indicated that many 2.0 enhancements are ready and are just waiting to be 
committed.  If that's true, I'd like to cast my vote for committing them now.  

If it is not a good time to do this for the TagLib mainline, then perhaps an 
experimental 2.0 branch could be set up so that others could get involved with 
2.0 development?  I also would be willing to help evolve TagLib into the next 
generation, whether it is with C++ development or API design discussions.
