That doesn't seem to be working for me with either flac or mp3.  The
properties text doesn't change when I try to overwrite it.  I did
compile with tagwriting enabled and I have gst-plugins-good-0.10.6
installed.  From the document you linked to, it looks like I need to
have id3v2mux and flactag installed.  Gentoo doesn't have a package
with either name, so are there files I can check my system for to see
if those are installed?

That works great, thank you.
