 twice as slow if you're using my test enc.py file. It can probably
 stand some speedup, though.
+Vorbis Comment
+A frequent question is how to edit and then write comments. This was
+not possible until recently. To implement this, I have taken the code
+from the vorbiscomment program, which is by Michael Smith and released
+under the LGPL. It has not been modified by me (Andrew).
+The comment structure is a lot like a Python dictionary, with a few
+changes. First, there can be multiple entries per key, because that's
+how vorbis comments work. So I might do:
+>>> import ogg.vorbis
+>>> v = ogg.vorbis.VorbisComment()
+>>> v['mykey'] = 'myval1'
+>>> v['mykey'] = 'myval2'
+>>> print v.items()
+[('MYKEY', 'myval1'), ('MYKEY', 'myval2')]
+>>> print v['mykey']
+['myval1', 'myval2']
+Each entry in the "dictionary" is a list of values. Each key is
+treated as case-insensitive. If you use Python >= 1.6, the values (but
+not keys) will be unicode strings. Note that I have not yet
+implemented deleting a key, since I have yet to find a good way to
+implement this.
+You can also get the comments from an existing file by opening that
+file as a VorbisFile object and then calling .comment() on it. This is
+treated the same way as above.
+To write the comments to an existing ogg/vorbis file, call v.write_to
+or v.append_to. The former will add lots of keys, so if you already
+have an artist key, and you add another, you now have two arist keys
+in that file.
