I'm sorry for that, it's my first time sending an email-based patch, in fact,
I'm still not sure about how to use it correctly, please let me know if I did
something wrong.

Do I need to send a v2 patch with those as the commit description? If needed,
is there any other place that needs to be changed so I can send the v2 patch
with the changed code? Thanks!

Thanks for your time! The ID3 spec is pretty confused to me too.
Reading the v2.3 [1] and v2.4 [2] spec could help a little, and I also
read taglib's implementation to help me understand these. Hope that
