#6 API for ID3V2 needs more set/get methods

It would be really nice if the common set/get methods
would be part of the ID3Tag interface. GetAlbum,
getArtist, getComment, getGenre, getGenreString,
getTitle, getTrack, getYear and associated set methods
should be defined for both id3v1 and v2, and I would be
able to write a generic mass set method that takes
id3v1 or v2, casts it to id3tag and sets all the common
fields.

It would be a better object oriented design if you
could hide some of that yucky "TRCK" means track, etc.
In addition, a javadoc change that might be beneficial
would be to include a list of some of the common ids
for ID3V2 tags in the comment for setTextFrame.

Thanks,

    We will make a major redesign of the whole lib, the object
    design and class layout will be reworked, to use modern
    patterns.
    Under that development there will also be a new wrapper for
    accessing ID3v2 Tags.
