#28 id3v2 can clobber apev2 tags

Spud McDuck

I've noticed some trouble with version 0.1.11 and apev2
tags. Typically I rip on a Windows box with Exact Audio
Copy and then apply replaygain with the mp3gain tool.
mp3gain saves some information that can be used to
backout the replaygain changes to the mp3 files as
apev2 tags at the end of the files.

After that I move the files to a NetBSD box and tag
them with id3v2. However id3v2 in its default mode of
operation seems to clobber the apev2 tags with id3v1
tags. To work around this, I now have to tag with id3v2
first, then apply replaygain with mp3gain.

This isn't a major problem for me since I have a
workaround but it would be nice to get it fixed. It
also used to work fine in previous versions (0.1.9?)
