I will add a report for this.  Is this also the place I should post wishes for 
2.0?  Or are you keeping a wish list for that somewhere else?

(I have a few minor changes I'd like to see that aren't really major reworks but 
2.0 still might be a good time to implement them.  For example having String to 
int conversion able to handle a leading '+' sign or having an option in 
MPEG::File::save to not copy the info between ID3 v1/v2 tags.)
