damn, I'm on the wrong mailinglists... :)

at least, it'll be possible. And the tag is as backward compatible as
can be.  It's just the Xing tag with some extra data fields at the
end. LAME was using this anyways for it's ID string so it was a nice
idea to put this all in there.

This tag is sure as hell taking it's time to get into lame, but once
in I think it'll be a fast riser. Independent of that, I'll be using
it. :)
