Ok, no comments, so here it is.

It manipulate (display, edit, remove) only vorbis comment, nothing
else. When saving or removing, only displayed values will be changed. This
keeps other fields in block untouched.

If there are more fields with same name in comment block, only last
one will be manipulated. If the field is removed, next field with
such name will "appear".

Cut and pasted from vorbis plugin.

BTW, when new vorbis comment block is shorter than old block, it would
be cool if FLAC__metadata_simple_iterator_set_block extended contiguous
padding block (instead of making new padding block).
