Not to be contrary, but if you want a feature in a library that isn't
currently a part of that library, saying that "we shouldn't have to
maintain patches to implement this functionality" is totally bogus. Of
course you should. TagLib never advertised this feature, so it's not
reasonable for you to expect that it has it.

If you write the functionality you need and don't want to maintain your
own patches, contribute it upstream.
