I'm definitely considering it. I was going to use

TagLib::FLAC::File f(path);
TagLib::ID3v2::Tag *tag = f.ID3v2Tag();

and then start adding custom data to a GEOB tag which would be applied
to the ID3v2 tag.

Looking at the online API:

it seemed to imply I could write an ID3v2 tag to a FLAC container.

I'm open to suggestions on a better way to do this though.
