One nice side effect of the move to github is that it should be  
relatively easy to track these sorts of things as a fork at first that  
can be pulled at will either the project proper or other people  
looking through the list of taglib forks.

I'm kind of on the fence personally about whether or not it makes  
sense to extend the canonical C bindings beyond the most basic stuff  
without going the whole way and having complete bindings.  Might be  
useful for some of the other folks actually using the C bindings to  
chime in...
