This may be be fixed in gstreamer/gst-plugins from cvs HEAD, but it
definitely doesn't work in 0.10.2. Until that is fixed, ID3 tag editing
won't work with gstreamer 0.10.

There is also the issue of non-ID3 tagging:
* there is a 0.8 "flactag" element, it needs to be ported to 0.10
* 0.8 has a "vorbistag" element that has some work done towards tag
writing. It needs to be ported to 0.10, and made to work.
* any other formats.

The other option is to write an alternate metadata backend. We already
have support for multiple backends, it's just the no-one has written
one. If someone wrote a backend using taglib (or anything else), it
would get into cvs.

belch noxious fumes.
