I don't speak for Josh, but unified diffs (e.g., diff -ru old-tree new-tree)
are the most common format for managing these kinds of changes.

I'm not sure that this belongs in the FLAC API; it should be able to remain
the same regardless of the tagging schemes that may come and go.  There is
already a libid3 that is used by several other projects, and that is
probably how it should work.
