This patch is useful to me, and I hope my suspicions of
it being useful to the wider community, are correct.
The patch adds proper support for Unicode ID3v2 tags,
used in rips to MP3 of course.
Generally, it fixes the quite dated ID3Lib included in
the project, so that unicode text fields can be
rendered into the ID3v2 tags.
Specifically, I have utilised these capabilities to
allow for Unicode text for a tracks title, artist and
album title field. The Unicode form of the text fields
are only used where non-ASCII characters are detected.
I will try to include both the unified diff patch, and
the 2005-11-09 dated version of the original source
from CVS. The latter is for verification, in case CVS
has changed (or there are unsubmitted check-in's).
