Observations from new user

I'm a new/prospective user of TagLib. I'm integrating it into a Qt
project and building on Mac OS 10.5 with Xcode but no extra ports

Here are a few observations of the trunk r1033357:

The TagLib website (http://developer.kde.org/~wheeler/taglib.html)
says to get the source via

svn co svn://anonsvn.kde.org/home/kde/trunk/kdesupport

This grabs a whole lot of extra stuff (and uses unnecessary bandwidth).

svn co svn://anonsvn.kde.org/home/kde/trunk/kdesupport/taglib

would work just as well, right?

The taglib/taglib/taglib.pro project is incomplete. There are missing
files such as:

mpeg/id3v2/frames/privateframe.cpp \
riff/rifffile.cpp \
riff/aiff/aifffile.cpp \
riff/aiff/aiffproperties.cpp \
riff/wav/wavfile.cpp \
riff/wav/wavproperties.cpp \
mp4/mp4tag.cpp \

Also, the INCLUDES needs to include ../includes to build properly.

The WITH_MP4 define is used interchangeably with the TAGLIB_WITH_MP4 define.
For instance in 'fileref.cpp' TAGLIB_WITH_MP4 is used.
In 'mp4file.cpp' WITH_MP4 is used.
