I’m also strongly against requiring Boost.  One of the major features of TagLib is that it pulls in virtually no extra dependencies (excepting zlib, which is even optional).  For a small, e.g. C project that’s just coincidentally reading ID3 tags, requiring Boost is a major move in the wrong direction.
