To read image frames, and most non-text frames for that matter (there
are a lot of them) with libid3tag, you are required to have a deep
understanding of the id3 specifications. While a secondary API or
modified core could remove that need, I would much rather see a library
designed with that in mind.

The goal of my library is to simply provide a solid library for
reading/writing every ID3 frame independent of a fixed file system.
Also, to provide an easier solution for GLib based software: I use
GLib's iconv front to render all strings as UTF-8; I store the frames in
GLists; I use glib data types; etc; and I try to follow principles laid
down by the GLib core.

If you would rather use libid3tag, I don't have a problem with that. I'm
just trying to provide a viable alternative.

Oh well, to each his own.
