OK, thanks.

Leads to another question, keeping in mind that I'm a user of IDE 
through taglib in a very minor way. Suppose, for example, that when I 
finally get current with taglib v1.7.x and someone uses the Perl 
interface to insert a relative volume tag. Will they not get a tag that 
is incompatible with players that support only v2.3.x? (And then beat 
up on me :-) Or am I missing the point?
