Not to hijack the thread, but if you do need to do any ID3 tag
manipulation after the fact, Perl and the MP3::Tag module from CPAN
kick butt.  I had a bunch of MP3's with non-ASCII names that didn't
always match and were causing me some headaches a little while back.
A little bit of time and some help from MP3::Tag had them all
normalized and cleaned up without near the pain that manual fixing
would have involved.
