In spite of it being a bad implementation?

Here are the defects:

- only works with local files
- opens/closes the file for every tag asked of it

Here are the solutions to those defects:

- use a different API that allows you to define i/o callbacks instead of
the one that requires you to give it a local filename
- read all tags and header information when the object is constructed,
and read the tags out of memory when they are requested, as opposed to
opening and closing the file each time to read the info.
