Well, I guess it's a start. :) There are so many metadata tags supported 
by this 0xA9+'xyz' format. In addition to nam, ART, cmt, alb, and trkn, 
I also know of cpy (copyright date), des (description), gen (genre), too 
(?), wrt (composer, presumably different from artist), and day (year? 
perhaps full release date?). I'm pretty sure there are a lot more. I'm 
just going off of my old xine demuxer which must have been based on 
things I saw in the wild.
