Before Amarok split out taglib-extras, the ASF code in-tree was
identical as the code here, so it's been given a workout for years.

The MP4 code is different -- the code in Amarok used libmp4v2, and this
does not -- but since it got put into taglib-extras (which is a required
dependency of Amarok) it's been getting a workout, and several bugs have
already been fixed (and the majority of these were workarounds for
corrupted files). I should note that Lukas maintains it based on his
pre-existing code for mutagen, so the only real new part is not the how,
but the specifics of it being on C++.
